    SOME THINGS I CLAIM FOR MYSELF IN MY TIME AT WASH U CS (SINCE 1988):

    1. last year, most courses & most students taught, most GCH & most UGCH taught,
      most non-SEAS UGCH, most popular electives, most contact hours,
      most lab hours, and last to leave lab each night, among CS profs
    2. first CS professor to move to LINUX (thanks to Plezbert)
    3. first CS professor to move completely from SUN/NFS workstations to
      W/Intel commodity machines accessing Linux cycle and webservers
    4. first CS professor to move to CGI programming for GUI's
    5. first CS professor to move to scripting languages
    6. first CS professor to push the LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySql/Perl-Python-Php) toolset (with Butler)
    7. first CS professor to use ISI citation counts to measure research impact
    8. CS professor with most minority students, women students, minority TA's,
      women TA's/RA's, women colloquium speakers,
      women-authored textbooks, and high school prodigies
    9. CS professor with most student/faculty ACM programming contest wins
    10. argued that Jolley should have an after-hours door and that graduate students
      should have after-hours keys (with Schmidt)
    11. led the first committee to admit multiple Indian and Chinese doctoral students (with Parulkar)
    12. converted SURA into an NSF-funded REU program (with Gillett)
    13. both DSc students won nominations for ACM dissertation award
    14. all docs/postdocs first published in AI Journal after completing/visiting

    missi took this with a disposable camera (not her hassy)
    missi says i am her picasso because i am fat, bald, old (but she is no francoise gilot, i say), and i wear stripes.

    i used to dance... i used to sculpt... i still take portraits of friends and family... i used to like my cars...
    (the bw portrait is of missi's sister who, i am proud to say, just spent two years of her life jumping on helicopters with army rangers as a u.s. army reserve medic in the middle east -- their dad requested to be re-activated and deployed to Afghanistan at fifty because apparently being a nationally award-winning public high school u.s. history teacher, after defending the berlin wall a few decades ago, is not enough service to our country...)

  • INTERNET PRESENCE OF PUNAHOU GRADUATES

    unique and total estimated google quoted queries, 1/31/05 ("where one blog equals a whole medal of freedom") these numbers measure internet presence, which can be related to fame, but could also be related to online activity of your community! these numbers can vary from day to day depending on google's updates, but they don't vary much. (the names on this list were found using searches such as "punahou graduate", "graduated from punahou", etc.) to get column 3: e.g., search for "kelly preston" and either (a) restrict with a disambiguating term, "kevin wong" volleball, or (b) estimate in the first 20 what proportion refer to the intended person, then divide total hits. can also try middle initial, if known, also within quotes. to get column 2: click on the very last link, or click on next, and substitute 900 or higher in the URL, then use (b) above if necessary. this allegedly removes similar content from the 1000 first hits. e.g., http://www.google.com/search?q=%22jim+simpson%22&hl=en&lr=&start=900&sa=N to get column 1: it is correct to multiply uniques*total/1000 for those who have total>1000 hits, since uniques are calculated among the first 1000.

    some notes on genius

    Genius, from gignere, is related to genie, generator, engine, engineer, genesis, genitalia, progenitor, and with a bit of derivation, to ingenuity. Genius is not related to generality, gentility, generosity, Gentile, or gender. There is no genius without creativity or invention. Do not therefore mistake genius with talent, brilliance, virtuosity, popularity, fame, or stewardship.



    Genius is essentially creative; it bears the stamp of the individual who possesses it. --Anne Louise Germaine de Stael (1766-1817) French-Swiss woman of letters, novelist


    I am convinced all of humanity is born with more gifts than we know. Most are born geniuses and just get de-geniused rapidly. --Buckminster Fuller


    The reluctance to put away childish things may be a requirement of genius. --Rebecca Pepper Sinkler


    There is no great genius without some touch of madness. --Lucius Annaeus Seneca, On Tranquillity of the Mind, Moral Essays


    When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. --Jonathan Swift


    Men of genius are rarely much annoyed by the company of vulgar people. --Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Table Talk


    A harmless hilarity and a buoyant cheerfulness are not infrequent concomitants of genius; and we are never more deceived than when we mistake gravity for greatness, solemnity for science, and pomposity for erudition. --Charles Caleb Colton
