    1. Erik Angner. (2021, February 17). One point that the pandemic has brought home to me is just how narrow people’s expertise is. I’m regularly surprised by how a celebrated professor of X can exhibit a sub-college-level understanding of Y, even when X and Y are related. /1 [Tweet]. @ErikAngner. https://twitter.com/ErikAngner/status/1362006859004141570

    1. Most instructors will have the experience and knowledge of their students’ situation to make wise choices about activities that will work best.

      Academic professors are acknowledging their students well-being which is important and shows care from both sides of the professor and student. This allows the student know that even though the professor is mainly involved with education, they still care.

    1. e here is that due to the sheer number of converging systems it would be quite complicated to describe each of the systems molecular contribution at each phase. Thus we’ve adopted to only utilize two molecular markers representing the overall interaction of all the converging systems. Below, for every phase you’ll notice the relative concentration of these two molecular markers, Wnt and BMP, changing for eac

    1. carica-ture of the Victorian gentleman

      This is an interesting description of George, considering that A Room of One's Own includes a caricature of Professor X, who is what she imagines as the type of man who writes myths about women. Is the author of the intro trying to draw a connection between Woolf's life and work here?

      On a related note, we've had a few annotations about these intros, particularly weird claims about women (perhaps overstating the importance of Willard, for example). In our readings, its been interesting to think of the rhetorical moves of whoever wrote the intros and time period overviews.

    1. Dr. Lamport received a doctorate in mathematics from Brandeis University, with a dissertation on singularities in analytic partial differential equations. This, together with a complete lack of education in computer science, prepared him for a career as a computer scientist at Massachusetts Computer Associates, SRI, Digital, and Compaq. He claims that it is through no fault of his that of those four corporations, only the one that was supposed to be non-profit still exists. He joined Microsoft in 2001, but that company has not yet succumbed. Dr. Lamport's initial research in concurrent algorithms made him well-known as the author of LaTeX, a document formatting system for the ever-diminishing class of people who write formulas instead of drawing pictures. He is also known for writing A distributed system is one in which the failure of a computer you didn't even know existed can render your own computer unusable. which established him as an expert on distributed systems. His interest in Mediterranean history, including research on Byzantine generals and the mythical Greek island of Paxos, led to his receiving five honorary doctorates from European universities, and to the IEEE sending him to Italy to receive its 2004 Piore Award and to Quebec to receive its 2008 von Neumann medal. However, he has always returned to his home in California. This display of patriotism was rewarded with membership in the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. More recently, Dr. Lamport has been annoying computer scientists and engineers by urging them to understand an algorithm or system before implementing it, and scaring them by saying they should use mathematics. In an attempt to get him to talk about other things, the ACM gave him the 2013 Turing Award.
