Weaving Wonderful Worlds

Jim Gray is Lost at Sea

From the article

“Jim Gray, 63, founder and manager of Microsoft’s Bay Area Research Center, had left early Sunday in his 40-foot C&C yacht, Tenacious, from a marina near San Francisco’s Fort Mason.

A U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman said Gray called a family member on his cell phone about 10:30 a.m. to say he was sailing out of cell-phone range and would call when he returned in range. His wife reported him missing shortly after 8:30 p.m. Sunday when he did not show up and calls to his cell phone went unanswered.”

He’s a brilliant man striving for wonderful things. Let’s hope he makes it home safe and sound.
