Last week while in Montreal at the Retrovirus Conference (CROI) some of the activists and advocates attending the AIDS Treatment Activists Coalition's (ATAC) Welcome Reception took some time afterwards to remember Marty in this moving video tribute
which was put together by IFARA (International Foundation for Alternative Research in AIDS).
I only wish I'd been able to meet him and talk to him about Compound Q and those early non-pharmaceutical treatments that he was evidently such an activist about. It's obvious from all the folks who spoke in the video that his ability to teach and inspire is truly what his legacy will be as the details of what he did become fuzzier with time. I think the criteria of greatness is based much more on how one influences those that follow in your footsteps than on the footsteps themselves and he seems to have left behind quite coalition!
