Last paragraph[edit]

I'm removing the last paragraph as it was lifted verbatim from http://www.neumont.edu/public/about/grady_booch.htm. Fikus 21:56, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

There's a photo of Grady Booch at http://www.developer.com/java/other/article.php/607781 . More precisely, it is at http://www.developer.com/ew_img/common/content/article/19990112/gm_booch/booch.gif

Actually, I find an even better photo of Grady Booch at http://www-306.ibm.com/software/rational/bios/booch.html . And the URL for the photo, itself, is http://www-306.ibm.com/software/rational/bios/img/booch04.jpg . Now as to the question of gaining permission to use either one of these, I wouldn't even know the protocols. But I have moved the ball this far down the field. There are two photos of the man. I would recommend using the second of these two assuming that permission can be obtained.

Copy-paste registration[edit]

ADA at the DOD[edit]

The article doesn't mention that Grady worked at the DOD in the capacity of collecting chances for the preliminary ADA language specifications. How do I know? Because I reported a flaw in the ADA language to DOD and the person that ended up handling the issue turned out to be Grady Booch. I don't know for sure, but I think he was in the military at the time. 99.27.202.167 (talk) 20:57, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Earned his Bachelor's degree at US Air Force in 1977. So I would expect he was a junior office in the Air Force from 1977 to 1981. - I cam to talk page to point thios out an recommend if ever found out add a sentence as to what type work he did while on active duty. 24.245.105.83 (talk) 12:22, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
