RIP Charlie Walton

Sad day for the industry earlier this week, but a day of remembrance and gratitude to a man who rarely gets talked about as the inventor of RFID; Hat-tip and kudos to behind-the-scenes inventors who have created entire industries and eco-systems that have in turn created countless opportunities for others!

Here’s the link to a great piece by Dean Takahashi from Venture Beat on Charlie’s story, and loss of a technology sensei:

Charlie Walton, inventor of RFID, passes away at 89

Rest in peace Charlie Walton.
