Nova Express writes: Science fiction writer and pioneering computer columnist Jerry Pournelle has died, according to a post by his son. Not only did he write acclaimed science fiction (frequently in collaboration with Larry Niven), he was famous in computer circles for his long-running Chaos Manor column in Byte magazine, where he gave his first-person impressions of the latest software. His Chaos Manor website later became one of the first blogs on the Internet.
