Dennis Ritchie (1941-2011)

It is with sadness that I’ve heard that Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie, the noted computer scientist and co-inventor/creator of both the Unix OS and the C programming language has passed away.

This is a massive loss, since the man’s work is the very reason for my career.

So long, dmr, and maybe now would be a good time to join the demigodic party…
