Let's Make It a Bit More Overbloated

Alas, John McCarthy is dead…

What, no reaction? No hysteric hype around his untimely death in media? No 'wow'-sounds, uttered by you, as you learned about it? The very first questions that highlighted in your mind was: 'Who the dickens is that John McCarthy?!'

Well, actually, this is the father of the cloud computing concept. Back in 1961 he prophesied that this type of machines will win the hearts and minds of users and become the byword for 'computer'. This man was one of the key figure in the development of IT since the mid-1990-s: not by being an active participant of this process, but rather as the inspirer, the pathfinder, the trailblazer.

Steve Jobs? Never heard of him.
