The history of

…the internet


Some, or better said many would say the following when asked about that month of October 2011: after the death of Steve Jobs (a reason for the media to gain more and more audience the days/weeks to follow), another important figure passed away a few days later.

My question back then was simple and realistic:

How many people (especially the younger ones) knew who Dennis Ritchie was?

How many knew what he had managed to do for all of us?


Not many. Unfortunately.


And because last Friday there was 1 year since the death of Dennis Ritchie, here you are:
