Today Is Dennis Ritchie Day

Tim O'Reilly has declared today Dennis Ritchie Day and asks us all to remember the contributions of this computing pioneer. For his part, O'Reilly insists that without Ritchie's work, O'Reilly Media would not exist.

As I wrote in my short post about his death, Ritchie had tremendous impact on my growth and career in computing so I am happy to oblige Mr. O'Reilly and mark the day here at Irreal.
