    Another Computing Great Passes

    Steve Jobs may have gotten all the press last week, but this gentleman's pioneering efforts in programming languages and operating systems paved the way for things as we know them today...probably more than an Apple or Microsoft product ever will.

    Thanks Vaughn, although I worked as a programmer in COBOL language for 2 years I'm not an IT guy anymore, but I believe that people like him and many others that pass unnoticed have changed the world more than one may think.
    Best regards,
