Sad to hear that Richard K. Guy has died. I've written a short obituary for @aperiodical, which I plan on adding to throughout the day https://aperiodical.com/2020/03/richard-k-guy-1916-2020/
Well done to whoever on the newcastle #UCUStrike made this placard!

I've written a bit about it on @aperiodical: https://aperiodical.com/2020/03/where-could-you-or-your-rich-pal-give-everyone-1-million/

Slightly favourable about this
