OT: akelman makes history

For those of us who have been around the Paceline for a while, you couldn't ask for a more thoughtful contributor or generous buyer/seller than Ari. Well, here he is lending his thoughtful ways to the selection of UC Davis' first African American chancellor -- http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/edu...134044714.html

Ari studies history, so kind of interesting to be making some of it himself.

Here you go, Louis:

Just to be clear, I played only a very small role in the process. Put another way, don't blame me if he doesn't do a great job! Kidding aside, he seems like a remarkable scholar and leader. I'm very exciting that he'll be joining us and VERY relieved that the search is over.

Very cool. Makes me feel old that the new chancellor was at Cal after me though!

Congrats on the mention Ari and also on the new recruit. It looks like he's going to be an incredible hire!

I think he's a remarkable guy. I mean, we'll see once he gets here, but he seems great. As for the press attention, I can live without it and the inevitable hate mail that follows (I won't share some of the highlights, because this is a family-friendly establishment).

Congrats, Ari!

There were mixed feelings for him locally (for those who haven't clicked on the link; he was the Dean of Engineering at Georgia Tech, where I am working on my PhD), but I wish him all the best at UC Davis.

No Ari you didn't. You helped show others that brilliance comes in all people. Man, this is just too cool. Trust me we need more folks like yourself.
