This is a shortened week since I’m trying to get everything back on track. Either way, Stanford has been productive!
- Stanford Professor John Perry won an Ig Nobel Prize on his Theory of Structured Procrastination. 15 years after the paper was published. Maybe they followed his theory too closely.
- CS 106A has 660 students this fall quarter. Considering that’s a record breaking enrollment, hopefully there will be a record breaking attendance.
- Stanford researchers contributed to a study that found what you wear affects what race people perceive an individual to be. Or as Marie Claire put it, wearing a suit makes you look “whiter.”
- President Hennessy still really, really wants to build a Stanford campus in NYC. Lucky for us, the competition is dropping like flies.
- Stanford’s Klout score now ties Oklahoma’s instead of leading the pack. Let’s pick up the tweeting pace. We’re putting the Silicon Valley to shame.
- We beat UCLA.
Add your own links if you think I missed anything. Otherwise, have a good week Stanford.
