Truthfully, I clicked on this topic because I did not know who Dennis Ritchie is. Now that I know, I'm ashamed to have not known Sad

It's strange.  When I started that noteworthy people thread my first thought was of Kernighan, Ritchie and Thompson, but I sorta wanted to stick to individual contributions..even though very few are truly individual efforts.  I'm certainly going to toast Ritchie this evening.

wow, apparently I was not paying attention when I did my Computer programming reading.... Cuase I even took notes that C was made by Dennis ritchie, and yet I had no idea who he was when I saw this.

He died a few days ago. Great guy. I assume even Java would not exist without him. In Belgium, some media spoke about his death but not really in France.

this was mentioned a couple of days ago on some podcast someone who was giving a ride to me was listening to.

Basically the guys said that dennis made computers for real people who did real work. And Jobs made computers for hippies.

Oh yeah, and DTP & Art for many many years was pretty much mac.  Stuff like that makes great sound bites, but aren't very realistic.

They covered it extensively in the US. I had no idea he was solely responsible for innoventing the C programming language, too. His trademark turtleneck and jeans will be missed.

I think there's a conspiracy.  George Marsaglia's gone too.  Not as shocking as not knowing about McCarthy, but still.

Well, at least he wasn't killed by a random accident.  He had a long life and died hard Grin

Some might say he talked too much about the period of his Mother.
