My wife just made full professor at the University of Chicago

My wife Carrie, whom many of you know from DOs around here and from the big one last October, was just notified that she has been promoted to full professor at the University of Chicago.

It has been a long hard slog and I had to spread the news.

Beers at my place!

Even though I don't know you or Carrie, I felt obliged to say "congratulations". As a researcher, I know how long and hard a slog this might have been.

Incidentally, since my book on Information Overload is being published soon, I have to compliment you on your screenname.

Congrats to Carrie. I enjoyed meeting her last summer when we were all slumming it at the Hyatt Lisle on the $39 night rate with the $25 food credit.
