Thanks To All
Happy New Year
Ken Regan is my co-editor on this project; he joined it this year. He is an expert on many things, including complexity theory, languages, chess—he is an international master—and English grammar. His father is a journalist and his wife is an English teacher. Perhaps this explains his ability to help make this all come out in some approximation of English.
Ken and I want to thank everyone who makes this blog possible. Thank you again.
Ken’s ability with languages does not mean regular, context-free, recursive, and so on; it means languages as in French, German, Latin, and many others. I think there is a gene that makes learning more than one language easy—I certainly do not have this gene. I will not explain the terror that passing three years of a foreign language in high school held for me—back then, without three years I could not get into college.
We want to give a special thanks to:
All who read these posts: Without the continuing support of our readers we would not be able to do what we do. We thank you all for your interest, your patience, and your support.
All who have taken the time to make comments: We enjoy hearing from you, and we thank you again for your ideas, your thoughts, and opinions. We may not always agree, but we value your input very much.
All who send us new research papers: It is great fun to get an early copy of a new result. We cannot always make a post about every paper, but we love to see new results you achieve. Keep the papers coming.
Subruk: Finally, Subruk—Subrahmanyam Kalyanasundaram—is an invaluable resource. He reads all the posts, makes great suggestions, and is almost always right about everything from minor English typos to major issues. Thanks again.
As we say goodbye to 2010 and move to 2011 may we all have a safe and happy new year—it’s a prime number. Thanks again to all and we look forward to a year of new results, new ideas, and new adventures.
We have some plans for the coming new year, but for now just one more thank you.
