Clifford Stoll

Clifford Stoll spoke today at Calvin's January Series (streaming archive available). Quite an entertaining lecture. Once he got to talking about technology in education I think he was a bit one-sided (tech can be a very good aid when used properly) and besides that as he said, everything was obvious. Lots of interesting tidbits only us CS/Math types picked up on, like "pop the stack" when he was coming back from an aside. And he jumped around a lot. Seriously. I mean literally, not his train of thought. Although that too. And I think all CS guys from the 60s that make public appearances have hair like him.
