However, I was intrigued by an article in the Obituaries.


of Palo Alto

Xerox Employee

Died March 04, 1994

First Reported Death

On The Internet

It made me wonder, when I emerged into the world of consciousness - when was the first ever death announcement made over the internet? When and where did it appear? And who was it for whom the bell tolled?
