Who is this man? He’s the anchor baby of an activist Arab
muslim who came to the U.S. on a student visa and had a child out
of wedlock. He’s a non-Christian, arugula-eating, drug-using
follower of unabashedly old-fashioned liberal teachings from the
hippies and folk music stars of the 60s. And he believes in
science, in things that science can demonstrate like climate change
and Pi having a value more specific than “3,” and in extending
responsible benefits to his employees while encouraging his company
to lead by being environmentally responsible.
A man named on hundreds
of patents died today.
Here’s how he’ll be remembered.
