Submission + - Roland Piquepaille Dies (blogspot.com)

overheardinpdx writes: I'm sad to report that longtime HPC technology pundit Roland Piquepaille died this past Tuesday. Many of you may know of him through his blog, his writings at ZDNet and Slashdot, and his many years of software visualization work at SGI and Cray Research.

I worked with Roland 20 years ago at Cray, where we both wrote tech stories for the company newsletter. With his focus on how new technologies modify our way of life, Roland was really doing Slashdot-type reporting before there was even a world wide web. You can read his brief ZDNet bio here.

Rest in peace, Roland. You will be missed.
