April 17th: David McLaughlin Day


MexConnect’s founder, David McLaughlin (1946-2019), would have celebrated his 78th birthday on the 17th of this month.

As we strive to live up the incredibly high standards he set for this website, we remember all the good times we shared in the old days—from hand coding thousands of articles and images to animated discussions about design, layout and organization of content.

David was always looking forward, full of ideas that were way ahead of their time. His wise and guiding hand ensured that MexConnect became the world’s leading and most respected English-language online magazine about Mexico. In his honor, we will do whatever is needed to ensure that it remains so.
