Very sad news :(
Rob Pike originally shared:
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.

It's pretty staggering to think about the impact he has had on the tech world in particular and the entire modern world in general.
Yeah, damn. I admit I had to look him up on Wikipedia, but his C.V. is staggering.
