Anon edits[edit]

Two anons have made clumsy edits which need to be checked and cleaned up or removed. Note that 71.139.62.252 (talk · contribs), aka the snfc21.pacbell.net anon, and 68.126.46.19 (talk · contribs), aka the pltn13.pacbell.net, are both suspected socks of Jack Sarfatti, who has been permabanned from editing the WP. ---CH 00:03, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Edit of 9-20-08[edit]

In the second paragraph, I removed the last phrase from the sentence "In the period of 2004-2006 he served as the president of KAIST in Daejeon, South Korea, a tenure full of controversy." Since there was no other mention of any "controversy" and no reference, I found it prudent to remove the allegation. I did a GNews search for articles from 2006 with the string "laughlin kaist" and found several entries seeming to support a controversy. Sadly, many were behind paywalls and the rest were in Korean. So while there may have been a legitimate controversy surrounding Laughlin's tenure at KAIST, I cannot currently find sources to corroborate. JFlav (talk) 18:11, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Color picture?[edit]

Fedora (Linux) recognition[edit]

Since a release of Fedora Linux is being named after him (Fedora 14) in recognition of his work...should that be added? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmaxel94 (talkcontribs) 01:08, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
