DEC founder dies

It's likely that many of the current generation of developers will never have heard of DEC, but they had a profound impact on the way our industry developers. So it's sad to hear that Ken Olsen has died. The PDP-11 will always have a place in my heart!

Sad news. DEC was a major presence around Boston when I was growing up. When I worked there I once ran into Mr. Olsen. He really did wear badge number 000001.

My badge number was something like 144250. ;-)
