Joseph Weizenbaum passed away

Back in the days when Borland was at its prime (yes, this was right after the Paleozoic era), I had the distinct pleasure to attend a Borland conference in Munich with Joseph Weizenbaum and Marvin Minsky as keynote speakers on Artifical Intelligence – I’ve never heard again two über-smart speakers going head-to-head on the same topic with such an enormous breadth and depth – and from two radically different angles. I was (and am) deeply impressed by both of them.
Weizenbaum’s voice will be missed.
