Also, congratulations to Julie A. Thornton on winning First Place in the Math, Physics, and Engineering category of the KSU Graduate Research Forum last week, for a talk on her M.S. thesis topic, approximate inference in Bayesian networks by edge deletion. (That makes two KDDers: hpguo in 2002 and JAT in 2005.) Oh, and last week Julie completed the Boston Marathon in 03:44.

In other news:

  • TMI about masaga's balls, which zengeneral won't stop playing with

  • The controversy over the MIT paper-spoofer SciGen rages on. Collapse )
