Father Of C And UNIX, Dennis Ritchie, Passes Away At Age 70

Father Of C And UNIX, Dennis Ritchie, Passes Away At Age 70: After a long illness, Dennis Ritchie, father of Unix and an esteemed computer scientist, died last weekend at the age of 70.

[I stared for years at his “C” book on my brother’s shelf wondering what that was all about… and I’m part of chain of knowledge, passed on from developer to developer. The most fun I have with computing is teaching. RIP, condolences to his family.]
