R.I.P. BOB BRIDGES 1950-2006

Another sad occasion: last week I attended the funeral of Bob Bridges, an extraordinary man whom I was privileged and honoured to know.

Bob served in 21 SAS, was a pioneer of object-oriented programming, a master teacher, an accomplished poet, runner and skier, student of zen and bushido, deeply knowledgeable in science and philosophy. He was a gentle man who observed the world with wonder and curiosity, making friends with everyone he met.

Sayonara, my friend. The universe is incredibly richer for your being here.
