It's fitting that his last name is only three letters long.

Yes, but is it pronounced with a hard I or a soft I?

But how the fark do you get student to use spellcheck? I mean, the misspelled word is underlined but they are all like "Good enough. Submit."

He is behind the Lempel-Ziv compression algorithms

That brings up memories that have been buried for 20+ years. I remember having to choose a compression method when using FTP and bulletin boards.

Remember Phil Katz?   Yeah, no one else does either.

Headline could be 70% shorter if we didn't mind it being incomprehensible.

Ziv's award was well-deserved. Lempel-Ziv was cool stuff; before it we mainly used Run-Length or Huffman coding.

Remember Phil Katz?   Yeah, no one else does either.

Unfortunately, Katz drank himself to death in his early 40s.
