Losing my heroes... by one. I guess it's a sign that we're all getting older.

Today it was Stephen Jay Gould. When I was a kid I wanted to be a paleontologist. These days I still have my collection of fossils I've found (and my secret place for picking up mother of pearl ammonites). It was books by people like Gould that inspired me. In fact, it's those books that still inspire me. I may spend my life working in abstract spaces of systems architectures and knowledge engineering constructs, but I still can reach out and touch the rock and see where we came from.

Thank you, Dr Gould. Thank you.
