First Steve jobs now Dennis Ritchie, what is going on?
First New report of Dennis Ritchie's passing:
Rob Pike - Oct 12, 2011 - Public
I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.
I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.
He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.
Dennis Ritchie Died last weekend, a death far more important than Steve Jobs', in fact Jobs' products are mostly built upon his inventions. Worst thing is that this won't even hit the mainstream media or if it does it wont make the big news like Jobs
