IDG World Expo — coordinators of Macworld Conference & Expo —
recently announced plans
to start the
Michael Bartosh MacIT Scholarship Fund, in honor of Mac OS X Server expert and author Michael Bartosh, who unexpectedly passed away during a trip to Japan
earlier this month. Now the company has posted bank account information for companies or individuals interested in contributing to the scholarship.
The scholarship has been set up to help a network engineering student to come to Macworld Conference & Expo to attend the MacIT conference track, “and hopefully spark their imagination to carry Michael’s torch and build the seamless, easy to use networks that enable people to communicate he was so passionate about,” according to Macworld Conference & Expo VP Paul Kent.
Bartosh, aged 28, was the author of
Mac OS X Panther Server Administration
, published by O’Reilly Media. He was also president of 4am Media, a Mac OS X consultancy firm and a regular speaker at Macworld Conference & Expo and Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Companies or individuals interested in providing donations for the scholarship can send them to:
