I worked in the Mac Mail/News team for a while back in the 4.0x days and again towards the 4.5 release...

John was one of the smartest and most respected guys there. To me, he was a bit like a teacher. His code reviews were grueling (in a good way!) He just wouldn't let bad code go in the tree if he had a chance to make it better.

I didn't know him too well out of work, but I was around him enough to say that a lot of people (myself included) liked and respected John McMullen an awful lot and that he'll be really missed.

Thanks for everything, John. We all wish you coulda stayed longer. -Asok
