RIP: Jamie Mackie

One of the most enlightened Indonesianists, Jamie Mackie passed away on April 21st, 2011.

Today The Jakarta Post runs a nice obit written by Thee Kian Wie.

I'm grateful to have known Jamie. He once commented on my draft paper. A rarity, for it was like a master giving a tap on a rookie's shoulder.

Rest in peace, Pak Jamie.
