Steven Shaw, who co-founded eGullet (a message board for the restaurant community) and is widely considered a food-writing pioneer, died yesterday. Most recently, he worked as Quirky’s community manager and as the director of new media studies at the International Culinary Center. He inspired many, many writers to pursue food blogging, and his work will long be cherished. Quirky will hold several events in Shaw’s honor in the coming days and weeks. [Quirky]
