Last night I run into something that Dennis Ritchie wrote and thus I thought to post this...
Well, I have to confess that Steve Jobs inspired me (and millions of others), and one of my favorite stories is something Jobs shared during his famous Stanford commencement address back in 2005 (http://news.stanford.edu/news/2005/june15/jobs-061505.html
). However, I'm so sorry that the media has been so silent about Dennis Ritchie's life, not quite doing justice to his sweeping influence on the modern world.
“Jobs’ genius is that he builds these products that people really like to use because he has taste and can build things that people really find compelling. Ritchie built things that technologists were able to use to build core infrastructure that people don’t necessarily see much anymore, but they use everyday.”
