He was director of MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science, and their main page points to MIT's official news release. Very sad. LCS is just as significant as the Media Lab, though it doesn't get as much press attention.

I think I might get out of this industry. It feels like all of these net pioneers are dying between ages 40-65. Good ole Vint Cerf is still going strong though!
