Ray Nichols, Superconnector and One of Louisiana’s Most Prominent and Innovative Voices on Social Media, Dies at 73.

Nichols, who grew up in Acadiana and was a long-time resident of New Orleans, had been in the business of “connecting people” for nearly two decades, and, in the process, he built vibrant, new communities of social entrepreneurs, writers, educators, artists, advocates for environmental justice, and champions of Louisiana.
