This Week in Stanford 12/12/10-12/18/10

Here’s what I found this week while lounging around at home:

  • President Hennessy won a leadership award for his work in semiconductors
  • Philip Zimbardo, professor emeritus in psychology, has started the Heroic Imagination Project, a non-profit to make more heroes. The WSJ article has not mentioned any efforts yet to use radioactive spiders or gamma rays
  • The SF Examiner highlights the good work done by P&TS on bike safety around campus
  • Joseph Kosinski, Stanford alum in ME, directed Tron: Legacy, released yesterday. That’s 2 in a row for Stanford connections with blockbuster sci-fi holiday movie releases
  • The Stanford University Press blog is recommending their printing of “Five Plays” by Anton Chekhov as a gift
  • Austin Keeley ’11 with FACE AIDS joined up with the Rotary Club of Los Altos to raise awareness about AIDS transmission in Liberia
  • Jimmy Bierman and Jaime Dorenbaum, law students, have a bit in the Sacramento Bee about California’s “three strikes” law
