Marc d'Hooghe (MarcD) died at home in Kapellen, Belgium, on February 28, 2019.
Marc was not very active at Distributed Proofreaders but remained a supporter of what we did here and talked about our work in interviews. He continued to liaise with us over the years.
Marc was the founder of an organization called Free Literature aimed at supporting Project Gutenberg to produce e-texts and bring literature to the Internet. He started working as a volunteer at Project Gutenberg in 2003 and, in addition to producing many books for PG, also managed the PG twitter feed.
Marc's contributions to the world of digital text will be greatly missed.
