Happy 2006, everyone! Before heading back to the office tomorrow, here are a few notes…
- Some folks from MIT and NIST further confirmed that, yes, E=mc2.
- The new mayor of Edison, NJ, Jun Choi ’94, was sworn in today.
- Jun’s MIT classmate, Jeff Ma ’94, has started an “athlete stock market,” according to an article in the Los Angeles Times.
- The new Technology Review had a number of interesting MIT articles, including this article about MIT’s top faculty members, the Institute Professors.
- During the break a couple articles were published about the MyMIT blogs:
The Blog Squad, Technology Review
Colleges using blogs to attract students, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
- And finally today, a little trivia contest (props to the good folks at Hopkins Insider for the idea):
1. In order, what were the five most popular home states for admitted students?
2. What was the most popular male name and the most popular female name of students admitted early?
