Some Links on Danny's work

I think it might be useful to collect some links to Danny's work, to help  produce an introduction to the book out of DannyFest.
Will add other links as I find them.

Danny's webpage at PARC, with award from SIGOPS.
SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award

SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award
One of the most influential Operating Systems papers that were published in the last ten years.

Daniel G. Bobrow (PARC), Jerry D. Burchfiel, Daniel L. Murphy and Raymond S. Tomlinson. Tenex, A Paged Time Sharing System for the PDP-10 Communications of the ACM 15(3), March 1972.
The Tenex system pioneered many ideas that are prominent in modern operating systems. It included one of the first page based memory systems, copy on write sharing, mapping of files into virtual memory, and user/group/other file protection. It also had mnemonic commands with command-line completion and automatic file versioning. As one reviewer said, "Reading it now, I'm pleasantly surprised by how much is familiar --- thanks to its successors." The SIGOPS Hall of Fame Award was instituted in 2005 to recognize the most influential Operating Systems papers that were published at least ten years in the past.
