I mourn the passage of Leonard Simon Nimoy. His character "Mr. Spock" was one of the most influential fictional characters of my life (other than James Bond - you know the real James Bond; "Sean Connery" not those other goofy ones but this new guy "Daniel Craig" is really good too).
From his skeptical lifted eyebrow to his fascination with emotional beings and his struggle to find a place in worlds where he never quite fit. He created one of the most iconic characters in all of modern entertainment. A character that has been an inspiration to generations of geeks, nerds, scientists, astronauts and entrepreneurs.
With a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye (I can't give up emotions entirely), I raise my hand in the (Jewish inspired) salute that you created. While your physical body may have passed, the character you created will always "Live long and prosper, Mr. Spock"
When I first saw his character I was only 13 y/o, I was completely "fascinated" by the idea of making decisions based on pure logic and no emotion. I still to this day strive of that.
