Raspberry Pi Foundation co-founder Jack Lang dies aged 76My friend Jack Lang,,a co-founder of .Raspberry Pi, passed away in the beginning of May. Jack was one of the most interesting and helpful people I ever met. He provided us, at YDreams, an early version of Raspberyy Pi (a tiny and inexpensive computer-see above) that was used to develop Ziphius, a pioneer and highly innovative aquatic drone.Jack was one of the most distinguishing entrepreneurs in the UK. He was also a fireworks and culinary expert, former technical director of the Cambridge Theater where some of the Monty Python started and a Pink Floyd insider. His presentation Creating the Climate for Innovation will shock the Portuguese reader: he proposes the almost opposite of the system we have in this country.Jack recommended us, in 2008,  to float YDreams, in a stock market, as soon as possible.. That was unthinkable for us at the time. Today we know that we should have done it.  Unfortunately, for him, he would not see the upcoming listing of Raspberry Pi at a valuation over 500 million pounds.Sunday News is a selection of links posted daily by the  Explora community.  Newcomers can check previous Sunday News editions here.
