News update from here in New Orleans at the APMP conference -
Congratulations go to Jon for having been recognized by the board of APMP and given a ‘fellowship’. Jon is now among a very select few to have received this award (I think there are around 10 or so fellows* at this point.) This really is quite an honor and it is very cool that Jon has received this. When you next see Jon, do congratulate him.
On a side note – I do hope this doesn’t mean we have to hence forth refer to Jon as ‘sir’ – and that Jon doesn’t start using terms like ‘hence forth’ and ‘my good man’. And, while he was obviously surprised, and truly flattered, by having been selected, I also think he was a bit disappointed that the awarding of this honor didn’t involve a sword being tapped on both shoulder and such.)
