“If You Seek His Monument, Look Around You”

I know Broc isn’t going to like this, but I can’t let his big announcement go by without remarking on it.

If you ever visit St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, you’ll find the tomb of the great architect Christopher Wren, who was instrumental in rebuilding the city after the Great Fire.  Wren designed more than 50 London churches, including the majestic St. Paul’s, and beside his tomb, you’ll find inscribed the words, “Reader, if you seek his monument, look around you.”

I think that’s a fitting farewell for our friend and colleague Broc Romanek as he moves on to the next phase of his remarkable career.  I know I speak for all of us when I say how grateful we are for his leadership & his friendship, and how much we will miss his daily presence.

These websites, and this community, are really one of a kind – and they are the product of one man’s extraordinary vision and superhuman capacity for work.  So, reader, if you seek Broc’s monument, look around you.
