I met Ted for the first time Sunday afternoon at the first Vegas PubCon. Later around midnight I saw him on the patio outside the bar at the Marriott chatting with a few admins and he offered me a chair. I was in awe of the brilliance of this man and picked his brain for hours with a few others. We finally called it a night at 4 am. Finding where Tedster was holding court at Pubcon became my #1 priority everytime after that.
I cannot begin to explain how much I have learned from Ted, and how appreciative I am for all the help and advice he has given me over the years.
Ted's calm and humble, but overwhelmingly influential stature in the community is as Suggarae said,
The fountain of knowledge he shared and his dedication to being an admin here helped to shape and mold some of the best SEOs I know
Rest in peace, Ted.
