The future and more from Richard Sprague

Douglas Hofstadter

Posted by sprague on March 2, 2006

I’m so envious of Sean, who went to the lecture by Douglas Hofstadter at Stanford on Monday. I read that book in high school and remember attending the author’s signing ceremony on one of my very first days at Stanford.

His father, a Nobel Prize-winner, taught my freshman physics class. I wonder what that family talks about at Thanksgiving dinners.
