i have been reading about norbert wiener.

the most important thing about norbert wiener is that he founded cybernetics, without which star trek would be a lot less fun.

also important is that there is a prize named after him. the wiener prize. i am making a lot of jokes about the wiener prize at home, because the seminar of a famous author may not be the place to make them. i recall the moment that marked the beginning of the decline of my relationship with a prestigious NYU faculty member, a moment in which i could not not giggle when he said "horkheimer" three times in one sentence.

i mean, come on. hork? heimer?
