    Teresa: He sure did, and to no apparent ill effect! It was an inspired evening all around…

    Congrats indeed!

    I don’t really know Saul, but I do know that he was responsible for the best damned view of a fireworks show that I’ve ever witnessed. You can get just about anywhere with ingenuity and a large supply of bicycle inner tubes.

    I agree, ScienceJournalist! Saul seems like the quintessential MacArthur Fellow, right!?

    F*** yeah! Half a million for just being cool is definitely the bees knees, but getting half a Meg aaaaaand being a MacArthur fellow? Fantastic!

    Lester (2): Your friend went swimming in the Charles?

    I was lucky enough to do Saul’s profile for MIT Tech Review’s Top 35 under 35. Honestly, I’d have trouble thinking of another individual I’ve ever profiled that deserves the MacArthur Fellowship as much he does. Can’t wait to see what comes of it.
