Compiler-independent portability of language, paired together with an infallible kernel, were the two of the greatest gifts Ritchie and Thompson gave us. So fucking underappreciated among both people who study and people who use computers.

The sheer amount of arrogance in the tech industry, of immortalizing the TV-friendly 'visionaries,' and neglecting the true innovators who thought not for themselves - not for the people of their time, but for the true and honest benefit of their successors and beyond.

As a student, teacher, and innovator, I can say I am honestly ashamed of what is being done.

By the way, here's another revolutionary thinker who goes unnoticed, unspoken of, and completely forgotten. He was defeated by people who don't even understand the basics of creation and engineering. You listen to FM radio because of this gentleman:

He fought all the way to his death, for the intellectual recognition for the gifts he gave us.

I'm sick and tired of people calling America the stupidest country in the world. I personally think Europe is the stupidest country.

Let's not be spiteful, you're better than that. True appreciation is given to this man because of his dedication, you needn't downplay another death because of the death of Ritchie.
