Congratulations Colin. If you haven't been to Kyoto before, you will enjoy it. If you have, you already know. I am looking forward to your interviews there.

I have been to Kyoto before, but it was over 15 years ago. I hear a lot of modernization has occurred, but that the old-culture feel is still present. I'll be filing my reports from their in the first week of November.

Thank you all. I am honored to have won the Kyoto Prize Journalism Fellowship and look forward to the exclusive access I will have to the Kyoto Prize winners, especially Laszlo Lovasz, who by all accounts is a modern-day Claude Shannon--the father of information theory.

Congratulations Colin. Well done and wishing further success. its really pitty and kind of shame, i live in BP. momently but no media coverage about Mr. Lovasz and this price concerned. Such scientist should be honored at every platform especially at his home country.

Thanks, Baolt. I believe that Lovasz is honored in his own country, he is currently the director of the Mathematical Institute at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. As a citizen of both Hungary and the United States, he has also been a professor of computer science at Yale University and a senior researcher at the Microsoft Research Center.

I've only joined this due to interest I have in finding sgt. Dane Phelps, Hawaii, of whom you have a photo of in your article. Please reply. This is an urgent issue regarding a criminal case. Regards, Selene K. Shine

SSG Phelps here. Contact me and tell me what government office or law firm you work for. However, I don't believe it is really that hard to find me. In the meantime I will report this post to my Judge Advocate General office, to Criminal Investigations Division, and other sources that are sure to find out who you really are and how you are violating an international court order for stalking and harassment. Yes. Due to your horrible use of the English language I can only presume that this can be one person saying this is regarding a criminal case. Do you want to know what really gave it away though? Your signature... "Regards." Have a wonderful day Mr Weitzel. Respectfully, Dane Phelps

Everyone, I am terribly sorry for Mr Weitzel's (a.k.a. Selene Shine) post on such a wonderful story. This comment bar was meant for congrats. Evidently some people have no manners. Again, I am very sorry for this man's behavior. Respectfully, Dane Phelps SSG/USA
