I'm trying to find an article about a life-altering brush with death that caused the author to re-evaluate what he was doing with his life. The author was the pilot & had his young son aboard. The article was published in the 90's or possibly 80's, most likely in the New Yorker, but it could have been The Atlantic or Harpers. It's possible the son was killed.
I remember the author being a famous computer scientist & businessman in the vein of Ray Kurzweil, Danny Hillis or Bill Joy, but I'm not 100% sure.
it's not Woz. He was alone when he crashed
