Remembering Rick Dickinson

The entire community was rocked by the extremely sad news that Rick Dickinson, designer of the Spectrum Next and the many Sinclair products we know and love has passed away.

Rick’s family have opened up a condolences page at his design web site which you can access here.

Please do drop by and add your own memories, experiences and thoughts of Rick. Photographs are welcome too.

His family have also set up a student fund in his memory at the very place where he learned and honed his craft. There is a link on the condolence page where you can provide a donation to this fund if you wish to.

We are left with the task of delivering Rick’s latest and last work. It is an even larger responsibility now as we each feel this needs to exceed perfection. It has to stand up against his much loved and respected prior works and be counted in amongst his greatest designs.
