Computer Scientists Leaving Their Legacies

The month of October 2011 has been filled with Condolences as great Computer Scientists starts passing away one by one. It began when the world was so engulfed with the death of Steven Paul "Steve" Jobs (24Feb1955 - 05Oct2011) - Founder of Apple Inc. Then a few weeks later, it was followed by Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie (09Sep1941 - 12Oct2011) - Inventor of the C Programming Language. And just after another more than a week, these deaths was again followed by the passing away of John McCarthy (04Sep1927 – 24Oct2011) - the Inventor of LISP Programming Language, who also coined the term "Artificial Intelligence".

Notice the timeline of their birth and death, Steve Jobs who was the youngest among the three died first, while John McCarthy who was the one born earliest among them died the last.

With their deaths though, my stock knowledge about some of the lessons I've learned from my ICS101 subject in College gets refreshed.

Hail to these great men of the Computer World!
