|Shimon Even (1935-2004)
was my graduate studies adviser (1980-1983).
He had a tremendous influence on my professional development:
introducing me to theoretical computer science
and closely guiding my first steps.
This picture (taken in 1987) is the only one I have of us together.
In my office, Technion 1990.
I never really liked that place, but there were times I was happy in it.
Benny Chor has protested this statement, claiming that I convinced him to join the Technion in 1987. Indeed, I did enjoy some of the benefits of the Technion, and I guess that it would be more fair to say that I had mixed feelings towards the place: There were aspects I did not like and there were aspects that I did enjoy. I feel that such a statement is not inconsistent with the more laconic one above.
