Still missing: Fergus McInnes

I was randomly looking through old posts and came across a sad one: a year and a half ago, Fergus McInnes from the Centre for Speech Technology Research (CSTR) at the University of Edinburgh went missing in September 2014 after boarding a flight to go to a conference in Switzerland. So I checked… but there is nothing newer on the Internet. The case is still unresolved, as this news item from Sept 2015 reports:  www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/crime/case-of-missing-fergus-mcinnes-unsolved-a-year-on-1-3880744

Not wanting to be disrespectful at all, I think it’s important to honour people’s legacies, whether they are around us, not around us, or we don’t know where they are. Whatever happened to Fergus, he must be or have been an interesting person. So after some hesitation, I looked up his homepage which comes up as the third result in my Google search. And after some more hesitation, here is a link to Fergus’s fascinating homepage, to which he referred as “Fergus’s brain online”: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/fmi/brain/Fergus’s_Brain_Online.htm
