I just figured that the authors of SciGen may have had him as a professor,
and this was their not-so-subtle dig at him.

When you spoke with him did he have an Intel mobile phone? Has the effect of
SciGen spread even wider than for submitting papers to conferences with low

to vague multidisciplinary conferences in, say, Elko NV.. Just Orlando and
various other places with nice beaches or other scenery..)
