Erik Naggum dead

Erik Naggum has died a month ago. This last action of him initiated another (hopefully the last one) naggumic flamewar on comp.lang.lisp. No surprise. His contributions, their value and his human behavior were discussed. For me, his major contribution remains his arguments about Common Lisp that enlightened me about that programming language. I discovered that Common Lisp is a powerful tool and not an unimportant obscurity as many mistakenly believe. Thanks, Erik!
