Default Fred Brooks -- The Mythical Man-Month

Mike brought this to my attention...

Of course, someone like Brooks' death wouldn't appear in the mainstream news streams. Who knew Brooks?

Frederick Phillips Brooks Jr.'s Wikipedia page.

His most seminal work. Explained, in great detail, how humans are even more important than the computers.

Oral History of Fred Brooks.

It is always sad when someone passes. But... Fred Brooks will not soon be forgotten. Because of his positive influences on many people, most he never actually met.

I would argue that is a life well spent. RIP, sensei.
