The Death of Michael Crichton

I was shocked to read this morning of Michael Crichton's passing. I was not aware that he was battling cancer. Here's a nice article and audio from NPR:

I've read several of his books and his knowledge of science and technology is incredible. After reading "Jurassic Park" years ago, I was disappointed that his stimulating intertwining of science in the book didn't transpire to the silver screen. He presented a good, fair, and diverse perspective on the environment in "State of Fear". The end of the book contained a massive amount of references for further reading. "Next" presented a very scary view of the future of the biotech industry. Talking monkeys, yikes!!

His life story on Wiki:

We've lost a stimulating, intelligent, and insightful author and entreprenuer at too young of an age.
