Definitely my star SEO pupil has to be the late great Ian Bruce, Inventor of the Laser sailboat and recipient of The Order Of Canada. I met Mr. Bruce at the Toronto Boat Show where he was promoting his industry-first and most revolutionary ELECTRIC BOAT that achieved speeds in excess of 40 mph: low wake = great ski-boat; anyone want to barefoot ski? Ski Nautique in the USA had an online reference stating they were ten years away from having and electric ski-boat for sale and in production.
I had the extreme privilege of sharing my SEO knowledge with Mr. Bruce and in the course of our knowing and working with one another over several years got to see the diligence and brilliance of the man in action. We worked on his site together and what impressed me that he wanted to know why I was doing what I was doing. I had to be at my very best and he would scrutinize most every element: he was sheer brilliance in action. We were starting to rank well and then on his xxth Birthday he started paying more attention to retirement. Of course this man whom I saw as the quintessential debonair jet-setting gentleman had a Lady of similar class, style and "debonair-ness"
As much as it would have been to make the production vision that we had worked on for the web happen I unfortunately received word that he had passed on. I knew he was battling an illness and each time we spoke by phone he sounded his usual positive upbeat self.
One smile note is that Mr. Bruce revolutionized two industries in his lifetime (that I know of, he probably had many sailing honours and awards): The Laser sailboat and The Bruce 22 Electric Boat. Knowing of his situation one objective was to find a Buyer. I recall how I prayed that a Canadian Company that he was in talks with would buy his production and inventory of 22 ft. classic electric boats and the technology that was many years ahead of its time. The Canadian Electric Boat Company in Quebec Canada negotiated the purchase with Mr. Bruce: http://www.electricboats.ca/en/

Cruising Up-River With The Dweeb and the Dweebette - reminds me of the phrase: "Beware of the naked man who offer you his shirt!
