Just heard the sad news that Brad L. Graham has passed away. The very first event I ever went to at SXSW was “Break Bread With Brad”, the annual event he used to host the night before the conference started. Farewell my friend.

Here are photos from “Break Break With Brad” in 2006.

Brad coined the term “blogosphere” on September 10th, 1999.

A thread has been setup on MetaFilter for memories of Brad.

UPDATE 1: A memorial fund has been setup for Brad and a memorial service is planned for January 24th at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis (via SXSW Baby!).

UPDATE 2: Anil Dash has posted a nice tribute to Brad Graham.
