Hunter S. Thompson (1939-2005)
“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
From PC Mag columnist Joh Dvorak
I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say I was pals with Thompson, but I knew him and chatted with him a lot when he was writing for the SF Examiner. Among other things I helped move him off the typewriter to computer assisted writing in the 1980Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s. “OK, so computers are our friends then?” he once said to me. I think this was after he shot one.
