Jerry Lawson Dies at 71

Just a quick notice. Whilst surfing reddit i came across this article. The inventor of the video game cartridge, Jerry Lawson died at the age of 71, just weeks after being honored by the International Game Developers Association for his services to the art of video games. Full story is here:

I'll be honest, i hadn't heard of him until i found this article but neither had many people until recently, sad that it took this long for him to be recognized. R.I.P to a great man.
