Yeah, I know I've bumped into that name (and probably taken notes) somewhere.
Hmmm... Might be from "Where wizards stay up late", or might have been an
article linked from slashdot... (I don't THINK it was mentioned in
"Hackers"... Rodents, where was the reference... Crystal fire? That's
mostly hardware. Accidental Empries? Doesn't sound right... Can't have
been "Fire in the valley" because I haven't read that yet, it's still sitting
on the bookshelf. Not soul of a new machine, that's post-digital Equipment
Corporation...)

I THINK that's in the set of notes that's on the box that's not hooked up
right now... (Shortage of monitors at home.)

This was the dude who decided to apply a binary and boolean approach to
electronic computation, right? I KNOW I've read some stuff about him... late
last year?

Now I remember. Slashdot linked to his obituary:
