the inventor of Simula passes on


Kristen Nygaard, the inventor of Simula, the first Object-Oriented computer language (way, waaay ahead of its time) has passed on. I studied Simula as an undergraduate along with other early OO languages such as Beta, both clean, advanced languages with some things that many languages today (think Visual Basic) don't yet have, and, as far as I know, it was the first high-level language that didn't use a pre-processor, and was all the better for it.
