Google guru prof. Rajeev Motwani found dead

ATHERTON, Calif.—Rajeev Motwani, a well-known Stanford University computer science professor who advised one of Google's creators, was found dead in his swimming pool.

Stanford University said the 47-year-old professor apparently drowned on Friday at his home in Atherton, and his friends told the school news service he did not know how to swim.

Motwani's work using algorithms to search vast computer databases, like the Internet, is celebrated in Silicon Valley.

BAD HARDWARE: I should have drowned too if someone else used my search algoritms to make $100+B company. :(
