Father of C Passes Away
Dennis Ritchie isn't a well-known figure outside of the programming community, but he was kind of a big deal. Considered one of the founders of Unix, he was responsible for developing the C language back in the '70s and from that came the many derivatives that exist to this day. He was 70. His life is worth Googling.
