Creator of Macintosh, Jef Raskin, Passes Away

I came across this post at Techdirt:

Some rather unfortunate news today, as it appears that Jef Raskin, creator of the Macintosh project at Apple passed away this weekend from cancer. Jef has continued to work on innovative user interfaces over the years, including efforts to make zoomable interfaces (demo page -- long load time) more common.
Update: News.com has more on Raskin.

Check out Raskin's work linked above here. It would have been awesome to meet such a great innovator. Also I wish I could have introduced him to Innotive. His recent work would have complemented Innotive's technology. You can see a demo here and read about last November's work with CBS News here.
