Rod Douglas was born in 1947, suspiciously about one week after Aleister Crowley, famous British occultist and believer in reincarnation, died. I’m not linking the two but it’s worth remembering. He died in August this year, so I wrote a eulogy, you're welcome to read it.
Jeff Minter wrote an astoundingly prescient article for Commodore Computing International back in 1988. It predicted Google Earth, touch interfaces, electronic ink and Atari's survival. Oops.
