Remembering Dennis Ritchie

As you probably know, Steve Jobs died last week. Sadly this week saw the passing of another visionary genius, Dennis Ritchie.

We owe much to Dennis Ritchie, more than we can ever possibly imagine. Without his contributions, it’s likely none of us would be using personal computers today, sophisticated software applications or even a modern Internet.

Thank you, Douglas.
