Kristen Nygard - RIP

Kristen Nygård - Requiescat In Pace

Kristen Nygard died suddenly the night before Saturday (10.Aug.2002).

He invented Object Oriented programming with Ole-Johan Dahl in the sixties,
and they received the Turing Award for it this year. He also has been given
main credit for the no-vote to the EU referendum in Nowray in 1994. He was
one of my heroes!
