Farewell to Michael S. Hart, Founder of Project Gutenberg

On Tuesday, September 6th, 2011, Michael S. Hart passed away at the age of 64.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Hart’s work was a driving inspiration to many pioneers of electronic publishing. We all owe him an enormous debt.favicon follow link
