Remembering Bert Moore

The auto-ID industry has lost another great contributor.
By Mark Roberti
Jul 30, 2012No sooner was the ink dry on my article about the death of Gay Whitney (see Honoring the Life of Gay Whitney) than I received an e-mail from Craig K. Harmon, Q.E.D. Systems' president and CEO, informing me that Bert Moore had died of a heart attack.

Moore was the director of technical communications and media relations at AIM, as well as a member of the AIDC 100. He consulted on automatic-identification technologies, but was best known for AIM's monthly AIM Connections and RFID Connections e-newsletters. In addition, he served as a member of AIM's Technical Symbology Committee (TSC) and RFID Experts Group (REG).

Moore's knowledge of auto-ID technologies was both wide and deep. He covered bar codes and RFID, and had the ability to explain the technologies' complexities in a way that others could easily understand. He maintained a healthy skepticism regarding the hype surrounding RFID in 2003 and 2004, and would send me e-mails saying, "Have you seen the latest article on the death of the bar code?"

Remembering Bert Moore I am shocked to hear that he has passed. I learned a LOT from Bert and had a lot of fun while doing so. He was a great person and he will be sorely missed.
