The west coast Sun Labs offers a weekly speaker series called 'Intellectual Desserts' where internal and external speakers present talks on an eclectic series of topics  - mostly technical.   Since I am headed out to the west coast lab next week I figured it would be a good time to give a talk about our new project, so I signed up for the Intellectual Desserts.

It was not until after a signed up for the talk that I looked closely at the speaker schedule. Last week's Intellectual Desserts speaker was Don Knuth.  This week the speaker is Ivan Sutherland. Both Don and Ivan are computer luminaries and Turing award winners - both have had an incredible impact on computer science - they are living legends.  Yes, I am intimidated.  But such is the life in Sun Labs - it is great to be surrounded by so many smart people.
