It may have come to the attention of some list readers that Claude Shannon has recently died. Perhaps some of our colleagues from MIT/Bell Labs may like to say a few words in the way of an obituary? The "Mathematical Theory of Communication" has surely had considerable influence in the broad area of auditory science, and the concept of information entropy will surely continue to be an important theoretical and practical tool in future developments.
