Dennis Ritchie passed away

Dennis Ritchie was found dead on his apartment last Wednesday (Oct 12). He apparently died last weekend.

Dennis Ritchie created the C programming language and co-created Unix with Ken Thompson. He also worked with Brian Kernighan.

This is a very sad October.


Steve Jobs passed away

After a little over nine months of not writing on this blog, i'm very sad the reason for this post is the passing of Steve Jobs.

Much can be said about the good and bad (of Apple, the philosophy, the technology, his character, etc).

None of that matters to me today. I feel really sad.

Having lost family to cancer, i only hope he didn't suffer much.
