"For want of a comma, the meaning was lost"

Jef Raskin wrote a response to Lynne Truss' Eats, Shoots and Leaves. It's interesting to see what a bright computer scientist and user interface designer says about Truss' (and Lyn Dupre's) book.

Raskin's open letter to Truss appears in the July/August 2004 ACM Queue.

Some of Raskin's work is available on line: his one-page solar system, and his explanation of the Coanda Effect. The news release of his February 2005 death is online.
