Hardware, Embedded Systems Two weeks ago, my grandmother passed away - the last grandparent I had left. As those of you with experience in dealing with deceased family members know, the funeral is only the start; the next part is taking care of the deceased's affairs, which includes going through all their belongings to determine what to do with them. I took care of my grandmother's extensive book collection, and while doing so, I hit something that fascinated me to no end: a six-volume Christian Encyclopaedia from 1956. In it, I found something I just had to share with OSNews.

Thom, he may have had children, and perhaps even grandchildren. It wouldn't be out of the ordinary to contact them and find out how dr. van Riesen found harmony between his faith and his long-range views on technology, and how well he communicated that harmony to his family.

(And if you do find them, and they agree to talk to you about their father/grandfather, a follow-up here would be aces!)
