Tech world in shock as Goldberg dies


Dave Goldberg, the CEO of online polling company SurveyMonkey and husband of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, has died at the age of 47.

The father-of-two "passed away suddenly" on Friday night while on holiday with his wife, who has flown back to the US to be with her family. The cause of death was not disclosed.

Goldberg (right) was known for his low-key demeanour and the good humour with which he handled being married to one of the world's most recognisable technology execs. Sandberg attributed much of her own success to Goldberg, who she said supported her career and shared in the work of raising their children.
