Douglas Hofstadter

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.
