umberto@abulafia$: poweroff

Umberto Eco died.

Probably one of the greatest writers.

Fascinating in every sense -  as a philosopher, as a writer, as a man.
It puzzled me with his writings "Foucault Pendulum" was magical - I spent days trying to understand the BASIC code that was computing Iahve's names. He was creative in every way and his style changed continuously from academic writing to graphic novel (almost).
