A postscript on my last post
An interesting note about the paper I linked to in my last post: I've never seen a Ph.D. dissertation with a dedication before. This one was noted:
Full of pride, this thesis is dedicated to: the souls of the Egyptian January 2011 revolution martyrs, the souls of my mother and brother, my father and brothers, my great wife and life partner, and my children.
That's kinda cool.

That *is* a cool dedication

On so many levels.

I've checked a couple of dissertations I have on hand, and they're all dedicated (usually to a long-suffering spouse) - maybe 'cause they're in the humanities?

(And I wonder about the implications of graph theory on grassroots uprisings - both visualization and prognostication.)
