"Dennis Ritchie, father of Unix and C died last weekend at the age of 70." http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/13/father-of-c-and-unix-dennis-ritchie-passes-away-at-age-70/ The strange thing is, i did not find out about this until today. It was not on the news or so. I guess because there is not many people that knows who is Ritchie and what he did, you would not read or hear about him so often. Also seems there was no Google tribute for Ritchie. Very sad how this man passes away. Rest in Peace and Thanks for everything!
