In commemoration of the tenth anniversary of Michael Dertouzos' passing, please share your cherished memories, recollections and musings on this legendary leader.

Michael was a wonderful teacher.  Though he spent very little time in the classroom after becoming director of LCS, he never stopped teaching.  He didn’t teach computer science or electrical engineering.  He taught more important things.  He taught all of us about things like responsibility, leadership, respect, and especially kindness.
