In the News "Douglas C. Engelbart, a visionary scientist whose singular epiphany in 1950 about technology's potential to expand human intelligence led to a host of inventions - among them the computer mouse - that became the basis for both the Internet and the modern personal computer, died on Tuesday at his home in Atherton, Calif. He was 88." We lost one of the greatest - if not the greatest - visionaries of computing today.

When someone dies its best to just say something nice about them or keep silent, using their death as an opportunity to make stupid, churlish and juvenile remarks is crass and unpleasant in the extreme. Really - just get some manners.
