Interesting Places to Go

And remember: "There are three types of people in this world; those who can count, and those who cannot."
[This quote was used to help introduce me at the 2009 UAlbany Alumni Awards banquet. David Gellman (Albany class of 1978) came up to me after the banquet and told me: "There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't."]

There are only two things you need to know in life: First, don't tell people everything you know.

There once was an old man from Esser,
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser.
It at last grew so small,
He knew nothing at all,
And now he's a college professor.
(borrowed from Prof. Matt Bishop, UC Davis)
