First Steve Jobs passes, I have my personal opinions on him that are better not shared (speak no ill of the dead and all) but he did help found an influential computer company (after all, they ripped off the xerox star UI first then MS ripped them off :) ) so I guess it evens out in the end.

I just heard today that Dennis Ritchie of "K&R" fame passed in the last few days after a long illness - he was 70.

for those NOT in the know, K&R developed the original C language and standard.  Most "modern" programming languages are at least tangentially related to C be it directly or through influencing the developers of the other languages.

#include<stdio.h>

main()
{
    printf("Rest in peace Dennis, you will be missed");
    return 1;
}
