In Memoriam on Google Front Page Nice Touch... nutsandbolts
What other search engine would do that? Very respectful Google...
That is an impressively classy gesture by Google.

In their capacity as a tool, computers will be but a ripple on the surface of our culture. In their capacity as intellectual challenge, they are without precedent in the cultural history of mankind. Rugles
I do not see anything. What was there? victor
It's there as I write.
A link to an obit of Edsger Dijkstra, the often quoted and usually mispelt, professor of computer science.
The link is below the copyright line.
I was impressed to see Google do that. Heck, you wouldn't even notice the link on another search engine's crowded pages. The link seems really slow, but I imagine they're getting a *few* visits thanks to that link :) I bet that does wonders for his PR as well! EliteWeb
sweet, made me all warm and fuzzy and well im not normally warm and fuzzy only a search engine could do that to me :) jimmykav
Nice touch. GoogleGuy

This is cool as he was very important to the computer world. He will be remembered.
Over 1,300 written works -- what a contribution to his passion!.. and his preference for "the fountain pen over the computer", particularly as an ACN Turing award recipient, what an amazing individual. vitaplease

nice one Google
