My paper with Aaron Clauset and Mark Newman on power laws has just passed 1000 citations on Google Scholar, slightly ahead of schedule. (Actually, the accuracy of Aaron's prediction is a little creepy.)

I am spending the day reading over my student Daniel McDonald's dissertation draft. The calendar tells me that I was in the middle of writing up my own dissertation in mid-March 2001. But this is impossible, since I could swear that was just a few months ago at most, not eleven years.

Most significant of all, one of my questions has been answered by Guillaume the adaptationist goat.
