  2. Robin Shirley

    Robin Shirley died on Sunday 27 March 2005, peacefully with members of his family at King’s
    College Hospital, London. Robin was a Research Fellow in Information Systems at the University of Surrey in Guildford, teaching statistics and scientific method to psychology students. In
    November 2004 he went to Egypt to speak at a conference and it seems that he caught Hepatitis A there from infected food or drink. Back in this country the symptoms began to show by the end of the year, and late in January he was taken to hospital. In the end he caught a form of MRSA.

    In earlier years at Surrey Robin’s main work was in crystallography and he remained active in this
    subject, for example looking after CRYSFIRE, a public software system he wrote which produces
    structural information from diffraction data on powders.

    Within the Computer Conservation Society (CCS), Robin was chairman of the Working Party on the S100 bus, an early de facto bus standard which had 100 lines.

  3. Klaus Peter Dencker

    Klaus Peter Dencker belongs to the great tradition of visual poets whose approach includes an encyclopedic dimension. Such is the case with Ian Hamilton Finlay and Tom Phillips, to mention two members of the tradition perhaps more familiar to English speaking readers. A simple example of the encyclopedic approach is Dencker's ongoing catalogues of visual poets.
