Subject: [SIGCIS-Members] Oral history with Dave Walden Re: NYT Obituary for Dave Walden

We interviewed Dave Walden in 2009, along with a number of his colleagues at BBN. Here’s the record with a link to the transcript,  https://www.computerhistory.org/collections/catalog/102702119. Video should be available on request. We have one of the original IMPs he helped develop in our permanent exhibition: https://www.computerhistory.org/revolution/networking/19/407

Dave is a huge loss. He was both a key networking pioneer and hugely active as a colleague in preserving and interpreting computer history. And a good person.

Regards, Marc

Hello -

Many of you will have heard the sad news of Dave Walden’s passing.  Katie Hafner wrote an obituary for the New York Times<https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/03/technology/david-walden-dead.html?unlocked_article_code=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACEIPuomT1JKd6J17Vw1cRCfTTMQmqxCdw_PIxftm3iWka3DIDm4ZiPgYCIiG_EPKarska9It3jjeW9ZFPLIpAfB_x-MZP1BoT0PghKq4r6k_And_r5OvDCRx1ojRXLs8_HjmNWDneLx1nfjl5R7bdWW5DaLAgiB1LBJlqZphIVyt0CcPk6nVA6UijIkFqPQlDp97RjgEZDDb_KW7TkUjZ6jVK03U-QI0WOpGWD3MnNT66LgIcwRaCVuuX2ooqC9nq4saYIVLSf65ex0we8P-gqETDXhqL-qpBZ4xTovXltZ6oC5T3hAGofOumWmRLTb39V4%E2%88%A3=em-share>.  (I believe the previous link will work for everyone, including non-subscribers).

Dave made so many contributions to computing, and to the history of computing, and he will be very sorely missed. His personal website has substantial material of significant historical interest: see https://www.walden-family.com/.
