IT関連の訃報が続きます。C 言語の開発C言語及びUNIXの開発者デニス・リッチー氏が亡くなったということです(slashdot)。

Rob Pike氏のGoogle+の投稿で次のように記されています。

I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.

I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.

He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.
