- Certainly deserved!
- Lets all congraduate him (hmmm- this may clog up his email.)
- Lets hope this gives some attention to computer science theory.
- Quoting from here about the philosophy of the prize it says Those worthy of the Kyoto will be people who have,as we at Kyocera, worked humbly and devotedly, sparing no effort to seek perfection in their chosen professions. Interesting- seems like you need to be a nice person as well as a brilliant scientist. As such, again, Karp deserves it.
- Its worth 50 million yen. 1 yen is 0.00942 dollars. So this is 471,000 dollars.
