General Unix Twitter is currently buzzing about the death of Dennis Ritchie, the visionary creator of UNIX and C, among other things. We hope it's just a false rumor. Story developing, we will be updating. Update: Unfortunately, it seems to be confirmed. Rob Pike, co-creator of the Plan 9 and Inferno OSes, who has worked with Ritchie in the past, and he's currently working for Google's GO language, posted this.

For many of us to reminisce, and others to see for the first time, here's the URL for Dennis Ritchie's Bell Labs web page:

For something of his sense of humor, be sure to follow the Labscam link.
