For those many friends whose research I have built on, be warned. My full name, "William Weston Cohen", is an anagram of the phrase "I now cite shallow men". (From Sara Cohen - no relation! - comes this warning: "Women's rights activists would probably request you to use the following anagram instead: 'I shall now cite women'".)
I am often praised for my highly artistic and functional web site designs. An example is the site for SC Indexing, a professional book indexer. However, I accept few clients - this one happens to be my wife.
Through my advisor, Alex Borgida, I can trace my "academic lineage" back to luminaries like Leibniz, Newton and Alfred Whitehead.
When I'm not working my day job, I avoid productive behavior by playing music.
