We've been in the computer age for a while now, and while that gives us the privilege of dealing with some truly great products and innovations, it sadly also means that we are starting to lose the pioneers that defined this industry.

On another side, I am shocked at the low number of comments to this article, especially in contrast to what the iPhone articles attract.
