Many of us owe our livelihoods to you, as well as our passion for what computers can do for us. Few brains have advanced the world as yours did. Your seemingly little spark ignited a sun. Were all the great leaders of the world, and company CEO’s, in a room with you, you would be the one that I would speak of having been near. You would be the one that would be my hero. Seeing your accomplishments inspires us to keep moving the world forward.
