In Memory: Seymour Papert

Paulo Blikstein's photo.

Seymour Papert passed away on Sunday and the web is - not surprisingly - full of tributes. I remember him most as an artificial intelligence researcher, and colleague of Marvin Minsky, but he is more widely recognized as an education innovator and theorist. I met him only once, back in 2003 or so, at a conference in Quebec City. These last few days the web has been full of tributes, not surprisingly.

From Paulo Blikstein, some links:
