I was going through Flipboard on my iPad looking for news that wasn’t going to piss me off, again, when I ran across this very cool article. The headline caught my eye immediately. Alvy is a cousin of ours on the Riggs side of the family. I even have the Riggs genealogy book he published, signed by him too.
I knew some of his story from a few years ago when he first contacted me while doing his own genealogy research. So, was quite interested in reading more. Enjoy an interesting life — https://www.wired.com/story/pixar-animation-alvy-ray-smith-pixel/
