Danny reports that Paul Flaherty, the founder of Alta Vista has passed away. Alta Vista was one of, if not, the first major search engine around. Chris Sherman has an old but valid history of Alta Vista paper and you can also read about Mr. Flahery here. I have no more information about the death, other than we should all show our respect at the forum thread I created at Search Engine Watch Forums.
