Daniel Weinreb

As most of you have heard by now, Daniel Weinreb, one of the Lispers' Tribal Elders and user/beta tester of the original Emacs, died on September 7. The Boston Globe and Xconomy have obituaries but surprisingly Weinreb had some interaction with Xah Lee who has a very nice reminiscence of those interactions (including thoughts on Emacs, old and new) and provides links to some of Weinreb's interesting writings.

The links and recollections provide a sort of short summary of Weinreb's professional life and are well worth a read. Like Lee, I'm sad at his passing.
