I heard of his death almost the moment it was announced. Shocking. Expected him to beat the disease and last maybe another 20 years... And you know, my first reaction was to think of all the rest of you geniuses out there, still working, still with us: PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES, ok? Take your health seriously! There is still so much to do, and technology does have a transformative, transcendent, redemptive dimension... You are all part of this phenomenon, whether you believe in an afterlife and a Beyond and God in some form, or not... Please be good to yourselves, and each other. I am deeply comforted by the profound & beautiful way in which everyone in the technology community is coming together on this occasion: it is a sign of Grace, of true Wisdom, imbuing your lives... And so we go on!
