One of the few people in chemistry who did both promoting Open and doing Open was Jean-Claude Bradley. Yesterday, I heard the sad news that he passed away. This is a great loss to many of us and certainly to the open chemistry community. Jean-Claude received the Blue Obelisk award for his Open Notebook Science work back in 2007 (I handed him the obelisk at the ACS meeting in Chicago; thanx to Chris for taking the picture, and digging it up!) and he contributed much to the community, among which his melting point and solubility data for organic compounds.

Few people leave a big impression on me, but he was certainly one of them. Let his extensive work not go unnoticed; there is still a lot to do in Open chemistry.
