Jim Noble, a long-time DMOZ editor, lost his battle with cancer on November 18, 2014.
I remember Jim from my own time as a meta editor with DMOZ, as Jim had been a volunteer editor with DMOZ since 2001, becoming a meta editor in 2003. DMOZ was established in 1998. Jim contributed a great deal to the pioneer web directory, and all aspects of its operations.
He was also a reliable source of information about DMOZ, participating in the Digital Point forum and other forums where DMOZ was often under discussion.
He will be sorely missed.
