    [sarcasm]who was the other pioneer that passed away?? [/sarcasm]

    on a serious note this guy WAS truly a pioneer and hugely influential in the IT but he didn't have a company producing shiny devises neither a "religious cult" following him so this -sadly- will only be published in IT related media.

    o tempora o mores
