It is sad and strange that we have lost two giants in the computer work so close together. From what I have read Dennis Ritchie was a very brilliant individual.

Yes, strange and sad, and at such an early age.

I sure hope that the other pillars of the information age will take notice, and realize that life is too precious and short, and walk away from the business while they still have their health. Two of Miles City's favorite sons who were geniuses of the computer boom (I am talking about John Connors and Bert Elwood) did exactly that. As a result, both of them now lead rich, rewarding lives without all the stress.
