$500k genius

Congratulations to Michal Lipson (www.news.cornell.edu/stories/Sept10/LipsonMacArthur.html) for being awarded one of the 2010 MacArthur Fellows for her work on photonic circuits. The Cornell associate professor of electrical and computer engineering receives not only the honour of the so called "genius award" but in addition a mere $500,000 in no-strings-attached support over the next five years.
