Dennis Ritchie, the inventor of the C programming language and the co-inventor of UNIX passed away on October 8. His contributions to contemporary computing are so far reaching that his work has branched into almost every conceivable human endeavor dealing with computational technology. He died on October 8 at the age of 70, leaving behind a legacy of computer code, algorithms, and heuristics that blanket the modern world.
