In Memory of Martin

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Martin Bosworth. Martin was Managing Editor and regular contributor to ConsumerAffairs.com and could always be counted on as a passionate advocate of the rights of consumers -- including those fighting to protect an open Internet.

But his good work didn’t end there. “I’ve tried many different things in my relatively short life,” Bosworth wrote of himself recently. “But it keeps coming back to putting my thoughts out for the world to hear. Whether by luck or happenstance, I’ve been tasked as an opinion mover by my circle of friends, acquaintances, loved ones, and colleagues.”

Bosworth wrote about topics ranging from Net Neutrality to the collapse of the housing market. His opinions always fell on the side of people struggling for their right to be heard. He pursued every issue with a natural curiosity and compassion that is the hallmark of a great writer and reporter.

His friends are many, including hundreds of us who knew him only through his friendly e-mails, frequent Twitter replies, Facebook updates and blog postings. His contribution was a constant value to all of us; his kindness immense. Martin will be profoundly missed.
