"Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man." -- Heidegger
Prank paper accepted for conference
In case you missed this story, some M.I.T. students wrote a computer program that generated meaningless scientific papers, submitted them to conferences, and one of them, "Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of Access Points and Redundancy," was accepted. If you guys who are going to AWP next year get in a pinch, you might contact these students for some last-minute help.
