Jim Gray, database guru, lost at sea, search suspended

Sad news, via Garrett Fitzgerald’s Blog and Scoble. Jim is a very special guy, as his Microsoft Research page noted, an ACM, NAE, NAS, and AAAS Fellow and an ACM Turing Award winner. He was a skilled sailor and his loss a bit of mystery. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
