R.I.P Jacob Goldman, Xerox PARC founder

Jacob Goldman, the founder of the 'rich neighbour to Microsoft and Apple' died on Tuesday. He was 90 years old. It is sad to see that the death of head of Research Center that pioneered and/or invented modern technology like Graphical User Interface operated using mouse, object-oriented programming, laser printing, ethernet, ubiquitous computing, VLSI is ignored by the world whereas death of few visionaries was overhyped and over-emotional.
