My Erdos Number

Today I finally got around to tracking down definitive proof of my Erdos Number.

It is 3.
1. Cutting a Graph Into Two Dissimilar Halves. Paul Erdos, Janos Pach, Mark Goldberg, Joel Spencer. 1986. 2. XY Interpolation Algorithms, K. Goldberg and M. Goldberg, Robotics Age, May/June, 1983. 3. Unsupervised Scoring for Internet-based Collaborative Tele-operation, Ken Goldberg, Dezhen Song, In Yong Song, Jane McGonigal, Wei Zheng, and Dana Plautz, IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), April 2004.

Not bad for a girl in a performance studies program! Now: where is the Cafe Press store for "My Erdos # is _" merchandise?

That's a little bit sketchy, isn't it? It looks, from the citation, like you were an editor on the proceedings for that conference, not an author on the paper in question. But hey, who am I to nitpick...

What? Sketchy? No way! I am totally a co-author on that paper. (And if you follow the "3" link, you can download the paper from my site. Come on, it's a paper about Tele-Twister! How could I *not* be an author? hee hee) Anyway, not sure why the citation suggests editor rather than author to you, that's weird, but it's legit and I will proudly be wearing my #3 as soon as someone starts that CafePress Erdos store..... ^)^

Whoops, I mean the "It" link. And in case you're wondering, I did the game theory work on that paper.
