Congratulations! Now, how about sharing some of that with us? :-)
And also, what's next for you? A teaching job?
BTW, Stephen, it is a measure of your stature
that you have lured Tom Kopecek out of lurkerdom to add his kudos.
If we had a category for Favorite Senior
Academics on this list, I would nominate him for
it. There are a number of folks on this list who
have been my mentors, and Goodacre, Carlson, and
Kopecek are among them. Thanks!
