Computer Pioneer dies


#1

Ok, so hit /. and see a name Ive run across a few times in the 20 or so years Ive been using computers. But the headline and the first paragraph dont jibe:

==========
Computer pioneer Bob Bemer, who published Y2K warnings in '70s, dies at 78

POSSUM KINGDOM LAKE, Texas (AP) - Bob Bemer, a computer pioneer who published warnings of the Y2K problem in the early 1970s and helped invent a widely used coding system, has died after a battle with cancer. He was 84.

Headline says he was 78, but article says he was 84. Someone needs to fact check and proofread their stuff.
