News From William Bird
Billy has been working for the past three months for the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton. His position there is DevOps Engineer, and he says that he really likes the work and his co-workers.
Billy writes, "I'm working on an NSF (National Science Foundation) project, and we support 15 different internal and public applications. DevOps is super interesting (google it!). We're sort of 'generalists,' or 'full stack;' we support every application team through continuous integration, continuous delivery, automated testing, and other cool stuff. There's a big learning curve, but I'm having a blast."

In Memoriam: Professor Larry Smolowitz
It is with great sadness that I write with the news that Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Larry Smolowitz passed away Friday, December 20, 2013 at Strong Memorial Hospital.
Professor Smolowitz retired from teaching in 2004 after nearly 40 years of distinguished service to the Colleges. A valued member of our community, Larry chaired the Department of Mathematics on a number of occasions and served important roles in faculty governance. He will perhaps be best remembered for his dedication to the intellectual development of his students and for the many kindnesses he showed them. I can recall many evenings when, during my walk home from Coxe Hall, Larry would be in his office meeting with students to help them better understand calculus, abstract algebra, and probability.
A gifted mathematician, Larry received his bachelor's degree from RPI and his doctorate from the University of Minnesota.
Memorial contributions in his memory may be made to Temple Beth-El, Geneva Scholarship Associates at HWS, the Parkinson Research Foundation, or a charity of one's choice.

This piece is entitled "William and Patty Hearst."
Also, if you are in New York this July, my class of painting grads have a group show at Projekt 722. in Brooklyn. The opening is July 13th while the show runs from July 6 - 28.
You should know I'm still using what I learned in math/CS: my thesis drew on some vector field ideas and I typeset it in LaTeX!
