I learned about this from ben peeks blog:

"French philosopher Jean Baudrillard, a social theorist known for his provocative commentaries on consumerism, excess and what he said was the disappearance of reality, died Tuesday, his publishing house said. He was 77.

Baudrillard died at his home in Paris, said Michel Delorme of the Galilee publishing house. He died after a "long illness," Delorme said, a term that in France most often means cancer."

Not my favorite French guy, but I always found him interesting, stimulating, and mostly relevant. Certainly his passing should noted. I liked his short book on 9/11 and America and other works.
