We stand on the shoulders of giants

tweeted by Wim Remes

Wim Remes tweeted this picture and I thought it was a really nice way to honour some of the great minds who we've lost. There's just one problem - not everyone instantly knows who those people are. I myself could only identify 3 of them with any certainty (I was pretty sure about a 4th, but I had to google it just to be sure).

So, I'm going to put names to these faces for the benefit of those who don't know who they are. Top row, left to right is C├ędric Blancher, Peter SzorFlorian Hufsky. Bottom row, left to right is Barnaby Jack, Aaron Swartz, Len Sassaman.
