Dennis Ritchie - RIP
It is indeed a sad day when one of the true pioneers of the modern technological world passes away. C and Unix are such huge corner stones of everything around us (like the ability for me to write this, and you to read this), and have inspired so much that followed, that you have to wonder where any of us would be without them.

I find it more depressing that no one went around spamming websites (that I saw) of his passing, and instead care more about Steve Jobs.
