We have a large visual collaboration display (a big TV) on the wall in our office - it's times like that a YouTube playlist is required...

Heinz Wolff - Renowned scientist but probably best remembered in the UK by those of a certain age for presenting The Great Egg Race. RIP another hero of my childhood.

Damn, that one really is bad. I know it sounds odd when talking about someone born in Germany, but Heinz Wolff was the quintessential English eccentric. Sad news.

Saw her and the Cranberries back in 1996 (at the Milton Keynes) -it was an energy filled set. Such a shame to die so young.

Ursula K Le Guin Sad .

Many a happy childhood memory of getting wrapped up in one of her books.

Right, this might be the time to finally read some of Ursula K Le Guin.
When discussing SciFi with friends she has long been the biggest name that I have never gotten round to reading.
I really must do so.

He may have only held the record for 46 days, but he was the first and no-one can take that away from him. RIP.

For M.A.S.H. fans, we've lost another. David Ogden Stiers has passed away.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/04/obituaries/david-ogden-stiers-mash-dies.html

Sad

I loved that show and still do. Stiers did an excellent job and brought something truly fresh to M.A.S.H. He will be missed, though he lives on. (M.A.S.H. still runs in syndication, today. Likely for a long time to come, too.)
