End of an era: Terry Shannon passes away
Terry Shannon of Shannon Knows HPC passed away a few days ago. I have been following his site for some time albeit not regularly. I used to read it when it was called Shannon knows DEC, didn’t follow it much when it was called Shannon know Compaq.
Terry was a big fan of Firefox from the early days and he took the time to join the SpreadFirefox community. He sported a Firefox button on his page
One of his blog post on the spreadfirefoxsite encourages people to think of 100 million download goal.
He also sent a newsletter to over 150K Hewlett Packard employees where he extolled the virtues of Firefox. In spite of his seniority in the trade press, he took the time and sent me a copy of the PDF he sent to HP employees
