2011 MacArthur Fellows Announced

The MacArthur Foundation has announced its 2011 Fellows.

There are 22 Fellows this year, each of whom will receive $500,000 over a five year period, with no strings attached.

Here is the list.

Harvard has 3 on the list. There is even a computer scientist form the University of Washington, although, which is unusual, noone that I immediately recognized.

I wish them all much success with the kind of freedom that such a fellowship brings!
