Did you know what happened to Seymour Papert?

The other day I came across this article in the Boston Globe about one of the greats of Computer Science, Seymour Papert, inventor of the seminal Logo programming language and many other important accomplishments.
"He was long a jewel of the MIT faculty. Now, after a devastating brain injury, mathematician Seymour Papert is struggling bravely to learn again how to think like, speak like, be like the man of genius he was." (from In Search of a Beautiful Mind, The Boston Globe)

Hard to believe that I hadn't heard of it before. So Sad. Read the whole article, it's worthwhile.
