While it may not be news elsewhere, I'm certainly interested in the "local" case of Marc Hauser, the evolutionary psychologist at Harvard whose work has been "under review". The latest interesting update appears at the Chronicle of Higher Education.
As reported elsewhere, congrats to Dan Spielman for winning the Nevanlinna Prize.
I'll be at the ill-named RATS (Research and Analysis of Tail Phenomena Symposium) tomorrow reviving my introductory talks on power laws, lognormal distributions, and the importance of verification. Stop by and say hi!
While I was away in the UK the Microsoft PR machine must have gone to work, and I've seen a few articles like this describing our work on password popularity. I'm happy to see my name "in lights" a bit -- why not? -- I just think it's interesting that this is the paper that gets it there. (I guess our coding work is also being touted a bit as part of Dan's Nevanlinna Prize, so that's "in the news" as well.)
The Museum of Mathematics is getting more notice -- check out their web page.
