 Computing Innovators Deserving of Thanks

"Anyway, so far so good. That seemed like a pretty manageable set. At first. But once I started looking into it more, the problem I ran into is, I realized that there are innovations that I saw as fundamental but which can't really be attributed to just one person. So the list ended up being about twice as long as I had originally scoped out -- there are twenty people in it, instead of ten. And it also ended up including one person who I know I won't ever have the chance to say thanks to face to face (Donald Davies, who died four years ago)."
