So many lives touched, so many that don't even know about it. That
saddens me the most, that so many are using products of his
achievements daily to make their lives comfortable and only a small
minority know what it took to get here.

Re: Dennis Ritchie

That's true. However, I don't think we should feel upset about it. I'm
sure Mr Ritchie just wanted to contribute to the world, as many hackers
of that time and he did it. This is his greatest achievement. Great
people don't wait for an admiration. They just do whatever they can to
make their dreams come true.
I truly admire all individuals and genuses who make our world even
little less problematic.

I pointed out that Dennis Ritchie did something we all should admire:

Got to watch what he created blossom, and change the world.
Remarkably, for the better.

We should all be so lucky.

Like Theo has said "The world doesn't live off jam and fancy perfumes - it
lives off bread and meat and potatoes." Den was a bread guy.

It's worth noting too, that Steve Jobs (deservedly) has quite the memorial
going on TV and the internet. But some of his biggest innovations (OS X,
NEXT, iOS) were UNIX based, and without Den, most people might not know
Steve Jobs.

Long live the bread meat and potatoes guys.

Dennis Ritchie should be the patron saint of software development and
