Re: “Jack Neff Was a Self-Made Man” (originally published Sept. 1, 2010, and archived online):

I started my career working for Jack Neff in Bethesda; I was at Dataworld from 1995–97. We used Fortran 77 to combine FCC tower databases, USGS topo data and Census block demographics to map out audiences for broadcasters. Jack was a fixture at NAB conventions for years.

He was a class-act man, to be sure.
