Esdger Wybe Dijkstra: 1930-2002. One of the last remaining computer science gods has passed on after a lengthy battle with cancer. Few had his eloquence, his wit, or his charm. A sharp writer (check out "GOTO statement considered harmful" or The Humble Programmer [pdf]) and a true pioneer in all areas of the field, Dijkstra had a hand in much of modern computer science. A sad day for nerds worldwide.
