In case any of you missed it, I thought you might be interested in knowing
that Jeff Weeks who was with us at DREI 96 and gave us that great talk on
Topoligy was awarded $305,000 as part of the MacArthur Foundation genius
awards. One of the articles I read says it is in part due to the work on the
shape of the universe which we were fortunate enough to see in the tape (and
book) "The Shape of Space". He had a similar piece as the cover story in
Scientific American recently.

If you hurry, you can read more about it at

He is sure a deserving pereson.

As ever,
Bro. Pat Carney
