Broken Reference Link
Alan Kay, his student
"From 1968 to 1974, Sutherland was a professor at the University of Utah. Among his students there were Alan Kay, inventor of the Smalltalk language" - if Alan Kay is born on May 17, 1940 and Ivan Sutherland is born in 1938 how than is possible that Alan was Ivans sudent ?!?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Calimero (talk • contribs) 04:16, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Caltech and CMU
Ivan was chair of the Computer Science Department at Caltech from 1976 to 1980. I know since I was a student who worked with him, particularly in 1978-1979, as his teaching assistant. Prior to his arrival at Caltech, the program was known as Information Science. I graduated in May 1979 and he was still there for another year. Under his watch, he and Carver Mead formed the Silicon Structures Project, that led to many innovations in digital integrated circuit design. Other online biographies have the correct dates of his term at Caltech. Prior to Caltech he was at the RAND Corporation, which is why his house was near the beach in Santa Monica. In the early 1980s Ivan was a visiting scientist at CMU (I was a grad student there), where he built a six-legged walking machine, described in a January 1983 Scientific American article "Machines That Walk" and an article in the International Journal of Robotics Research "Footprints in the Asphalt." It had that title since at 1600 pounds, it was so heavy it made divots in the asphalt parking lot between Wean and Hamerschlag Halls. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmhwalker (talk • contribs) 17:17, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
The Quotations section is flagged as needing references- but each of the quotes references something specific with an active link... so, not sure what else is needed. Why not remove the flag? PatienceFortitude (talk) 01:51, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
