Congratulations!! Glad to see technical contributions getting the unique credit it deserves! Glad that we have such talented people in our midst, and that they did not have to migrate to LA to do their work!!

It would be nice if just once there was a category on TownSquare without a snide posting. Why do people have to be so negative all the time? When a local wins a prestigious award, I think that's good news. Congratulations.

Welcome to Palo Alto, Polly. Seems like there's always someone out there who feels the need to be snide, sarcastic or negative about any given subject. I remember seeing negative and nasty posts on very uplifting and well-worded threads. I'm with you -- I've grown very weary of all the "holier than thou" and bickery responses to even nice stories like this.
