SIGACT News

In the chair's letter of the December SIGACT News, Richard Ladner points to this and other weblogs for discussions about the FOCS Business meeting panel discussion. In case you have come here for that reason, you can find those posts here, here, here, here, here and here.

Also in this month's SIGACT News, Neil Immerman writes a guest complexity column on Progress in Descriptive Complexity (which defines complexity classes using logical structures), Karp publishes his committee report on TCS funding, Tim Roughgarden interviews the STOC best student paper award winner Vladimir Trifonov and much more.

For a mere $18 ($9 for students), you can become a SIGACT member and get SIGACT News in print and online, online access to some other ACM theory publications, reduced rates at conferences and feeling good about just helping out the theory community. (Full disclosure: I'm currently vice-chair of SIGACT. You should join anyway.)

I'll end with the Quarterly Quote from the latest issue.

I'd like a large order of FiboNachos.

Okay sir, that'll cost as much as a small order and a medium order combined.
