Jerome Rubin, helped forge LexisNexis, dies at 86

AP – “Jerome Rubin, who helped bring to market the commercial online research database today known as LexisNexis and the display technology behind millions of Amazon Kindles and other e-readers, has died in New York. He was 86…. Rubin was trained as a physicist and attorney, but in the 1970s was hired by an Ohio-based company to make commercially viable what was then a novel product — a computer “search and retrieval system” or database of state case law.”
