There Were Giants Upon the Earth

Steve Jobs. Dennis Ritchie. John McCarthy. Tony Sale.

These are men who - save for Steve Jobs - were little known outside the technical community, but without whom computing as we know it today would not be. Dennis created Unix and C; John invented Lisp; Tony continued the legacy of Bletchley Park, where Turing and others toiled in extreme secrecy but whose efforts shorted World War II by two years.

All pioneers of computing.

They will be missed.

Steve Jobs

This generation, this world, was graced with the brilliance of Steve Jobs, a man of integrity who irreversibly changed the nature of computing for the good. His passion for simplicity, elegance, and beauty - even in the invisible - was and is an inspiration for all software developers.

Quote of the day:

Almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Steve Jobs
