Deceased Jesuit was computer pioneer, made the web possible
CWN - November 07, 2011
Father Robert Busa, SJ, died in August, just short of his 98th birthday. Vatican Insider profiles the priest whose research in computer language paved the way for the arrival of word processing, email, hypertext, and the internet.
Editor's note: Because of an error in translation, an early version of this story reported that Father Busa had died in November. We regret the error.
