Where are the Movies?



Dick Karp and I first met at the IFIP Congress in Stockholm in August of 1974. I recall the meeting vividly. I was, then, a freshly minted assistant professor at Yale Computer Science Department, when I met him. Dick was quite friendly and gracious towards me and I have ever since considered him a close friend. Actually the truth is I was a “Gibbs Instructor.” I had a reduced teaching load, only a two year contract, and a small travel budget. I also was paid 10 percent less than my colleagues—David Dobkin and Larry Snyder—who were real assistant professors.
