Happy Birthday
Don Knuth!

Born:  Jan 10, 1938
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Knuth has been a prolific innovator in both mathematics and computer science, and has made many important contributions to both fields. At least two of these contributions have had a profound effect on their respective disciplines. His set of books, The Art of Computer Programming, has become a classic in that field and his development of the TeX typesetting system changed forever the way that mathematics is communicated and published.
