That's a shame - I am a big fan of scientists who make science approachable by mere mortals, and Gould was one of my favorites. I especially enjoyed his guest appearance on "The Simpsons" a while back.
New Scientist has a good writeup here:
and here's a biography with tons of good links:

And a couple more Gould quotations I like:
"The most important scientific revolutions all include, as their only common feature, the dethronement of human arrogance from one pedestal after another of previous convictions about our centrality in the cosmos. "
"The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question. "
