    I just found out that Bob Pease passed away on Saturday. Well known for his
    "What's All This . . . Stuff, Anyhow? " lead in to many columns and articles.

    I knew Bob for the last twenty plus years, worked with him, debated him
    and respected the wealth of knowledge he had.

    He liked and got a lot of public attention, in private he was a knowledgeable
    engineer with endless interests.

    He will be missed, and the world has lost a real character.

    And that just after Jim Williams - in fact Bob was returning from Jim's
    memorial when he crashed his car:

    I was talking to a friend who is also an engineer the other day and he
    didn't know who Bob Pease was! I was floored and tried to explain to
    him why Bob is so significant. I found that I really couldn't put it
    into words adequately. Paul Rako did a great job of it in his
    article.

    Bob was iconic as a nerds nerd and proud of it. But not the
    stereotypical nerd. He was a unique nerdtype all his own. He will be
    missed.

    Our role models die one by one, achievements and discoveries and
    original thoughts are silenced one voice at a time, and all we have to
    offer our future is PowerPoint and schedule compliance and ROI and CPM
    and unique visitor counts.

    I sat on my hunkers. I looked through my peepers. I saw the dead
    burying the living.
