A friend from college - Ned Freed has died
I graduated in 1978 from Harvey Mudd College and he was three years behind me. But I came back a couple years later to run the computer center (a VAX-11/780) and saw him graduate.
I gave him some software products to help kick start Innosoft - the company he started with a couple other students. Eventually sold to Sun / Oracle.
He was a coauthor of the MIME spec used in billions of computers today.
Spoilers: Obi-Wan Episode 3
Obi-Wan's lack of mojo in episode 3 is sad and borderline unbelievable. Jedi were trained for mental toughness and he still had a job keeping an eye on the kids, so he couldn't completely let himself go. It's just such a stark contrast to this scene.

Decided to see how Heidi reacted to Super Mario World on the SNES…Though she couldn’t quite figure out the controls yet, she was content to sit in my lap and laugh and giggle until she was breathless! Yoshi running away was particularly funny, but the whole game caught her attention in a good way. The programming, artwork, and world building really came together wonderfully.
