Default Inventor of NTP protocol that keeps time on billions of devices dies at age 85

From https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2024...ies-at-age-85/:
On Thursday, Internet pioneer Vint Cerf announced that Dr. David L. Mills, the inventor of Network Time Protocol (NTP), died peacefully at age 85 on January 17, 2024. The announcement came in a post on the Internet Society mailing list after Cerf was informed of David's death by Mills' daughter, Leigh.
