Article: The Hunt for a Missing Silicon Valley Legend

The Hunt for a Missing Silicon Valley LegendSome great articles in the August issue of Wired magazine. This one is particularly poignant. This is the story of the disappearance at sea of Jim Gray, a legendary programmer (although I didn’t know the name) whose boat simply vanished without trace. He is deeply respected in technological circles but all efforts to find him have come to nothing despite having limitless money, cutting edge technology and a horde of volunteers. The computer industry has lost one of its own and the trail has gone cold.  Hugely sad.
