RIP, Jean Baudrillard

I was sad to see that author and theorist, Jean Baudrillard, died yesterday. In a number of my college courses we read many of his writings and essays, and while I didn’t always understand them, I did enjoy the challenging thoughts he offered up. The Wikipedia entry on Baudrillard gives a great overview of a number of his theories and how they interconnect (and intersect) with other postmodern theories.
