Alan Kotok, Computer Gaming Pioneer, Dies at 64

Alan Kotok, computer game pioneer and contributor to the early computer game SpaceWar!, died today of a heart attack at the age of 64. Though Kotok didn't contribute any code directly to Steve Russell's all-important computer game, he did help out with the critical sine and cosine functions necessary for the game's mechanics. You can read a bit about Kotok at Wikipedia and ZDnet.
