Not really a comment on the last issue, but a request for an article for the next issue.

I saw -- and was saddened by -- an obituary in the Monday 5/2 NYTimes for Phillip Katz, age 37, inventor of file-compression software (PKZip) and founder of PKWare, Inc. The obit says Mr. Katz died in a Milwaukee hotel room on April 14 from complications of alcoholism.

Can anyone give me more info about Katz, development of zip file technology, and related topics?

Thank you,
Susan M.
