Dear sir,

In your web article dated 2/1/2016 on Ian Murdock you wrote:

> Can anybody think of awards that Ian Murdock should be nominated for,
either in free software, computing or engineering in general? Some, like
the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering can't be awarded
posthumously but others may be within reach.

These came to mind:

ACM Turing Prize
http://amturing.acm.org/

ACM Distinguished Service Award
http://awards.acm.org/distinguished_service/

EFF Pioneer Award

IEEE Computer Pioneer Award

Lovelace Medal

Thank you for remembering Mr. Murdock so kindly.
