Default Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, has died

From http://h-online.com/-1339145

Quote:
Michael S. Hart, the founder of Project Gutenberg, that publishes electronic versions of literary works and makes them freely available worldwide, has passed away. The obituary published on the Gutenberg site states that he died at the age of 64, on 6 September, at his home in Urbana, Illinois, US. It relates Hart's own story of the founding of Project Gutenberg: in 1971 he had access to significant computing power at the University of Illinois; after receiving a free copy of the US Declaration of Independence, he typed the text into a computer and sent it to other users on the network. In this way was born the concept of free ebooks, and eventually, Project Gutenberg.
