Political Web Pioneer Dies in Plane Crash

ClickZ_Campaign08_katefinal.jpgA pioneer of Internet consulting and Web development for Republicans is no longer with us. Founder and CEO of New Media Communications, and a partner of Connell Donatelli, an affiliated Web consultancy, died Friday in a plane crash on his way to Ohio, according to Connell Donatelli’s Eric Frenchman. Apparently Connell was piloting the plane.

I never met Connell, though I’ve known his close colleagues Frenchman and Becki Donatelli for some time (both drove online ad strategy for the 2008 McCain campaign).
