April 22, 2017: Rest In Peace, Bob Taylor

Bob Taylor

Every Monday evening, I make sure to check out the latest issue of Randy Cassingham's This Is True email newsletter. One of its regular weekly features is the "Honorary Unsubscribe," which notes the passing of someone who slipped under the radar of mainstream media but is worthy of remembrance. A recent honoree was Robert Taylor, who is fundamentally responsible for the computer you're reading this on right now, the Internet used to get that information to you, and a whole lot else that we take for granted as part of modern life.

Here's the amazing article. It's well worth a read. Thanks for everything you did, Bob; we literally wouldn't be here without you.
