Submission + - Dennis Ritchie has died (biobiochile.cl)

rjh writes: "Dennis Ritchie, father of both C and UNIX, has died at age seventy. (English-speaking news outlets haven't yet picked it up yet, but Google Translate does well with the link.) In a career that not only spanned modern computing but defined it, he developed many tools and systems that we take for granted today. He received a Turing Prize in 1983 for his services to the industry, but even then he didn't slow down: he had a sterling career with Bell Labs and Lucent until finally retiring in 2007."
