Moshe Bar claims he has a Phd, but avoids directing me to his thesis!
What do YOU think?
Last Wednesday, just before his lecture,
I told Moshe Bar that I have searched the web for any peer reviewed article of his, but in vain. No article nor thesis were to be found. I asked him where he had done his Masters and PhD. He told me he had them in Tokyo and Milano, respectively, and promised that if I e-mailed him, he would send me copies of his thesiss.
I did email him:
I am the one who talked to you yesterday, regarding your academic
work. You said that I should e-mail you, and then you would send me your
Masters and PhD thesiss. Also, if you could name the institutions in
Milano and Tokyo, it would be nice, as I found out that there are
honorable institutions in Milano.
But I got no link in reply. Instead, I got a question:
*This message was transferred with a trial version of CommuniGate(tm) Pro*
Are you writing my biography or what?
And then, nothing but silence, though I replied once:
No, I was just interested. As it happens, I have already heard you lecture
on three different occasions (yesterday, and in two IGLU events),
and wanted to read more of your academic work.
I guess I forgot to mention that I am an MSc student at the Technion,
and that my thesis is about cluster scheduling. As my bibliography includes
references to MOSIX, Linux, Condor, REXEC, Libra and even bash,
I was interested in your academic work.
Maybe I should not wonder, why he claimed on his lecture, that
and the likes of them, are only used for code ran once and then discarded. I, at least, would never bother to make any code parallel using one of those special libraries, had I intended to discard it.
