Mérida, XI SLALM, 1998

May 29, 2013

This one is incredible. No beard, and I do not look yet like an orca.

SLALM 1998 - Merida, Venezuela

I’m in the last row, sort of in the middle. Xavier Caicedo is on the second row, to the left. My friend Juan Carlos Rivera is on the last row as well. I should probably stop now.


MSRI, The continuum hypothesis, 2001

Workshop, May 29 – June 01, 2001. Apparently continuing with the nostalgia theme.


Here is the list of participants.

Paris, Logic Colloquium 2000

May 29, 2013


I ran into this picture a few days ago, when looking at the old photos from the Martin Conference. I posted here the group picture from that conference. John Steel should be posting the other pictures soon (well, I’ve been waiting since 2001, so we’ll see), or I may post them if that ends up not happening.

This one is the conference photo from the Logic Colloquium 2000. The website has many other pictures available as well. It was an interesting meeting.

Paris, July 23 – 31, 2000. The meeting site will be the Sorbonne, where David Hilbert presented his famous list of problems at the International Congress of Mathematicians in August 1900.

As I recall, at the opening we listened to a recording of part of Hilbert’s address, including his Wir müssen wissen. Wir werden wissen.

I like this picture very much. You can see me behind Joel Hamkins, in what seems to be row eight. (I believe I met Joel and his wife, Barbara Gail Montero, at this conference.) Paul Larson still has hair.
