Happy Birthday Sunil Gulati, etc.

Written by

Did you know that other people associated with Columbia besides the Terrible 12s have been doing things (exciting things, in fact) this summer? It’s true! Here, we’ll prove it to you:

— Columbia law professor (and subject of a 2007 Blue and White profile) Tim Wu wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about bandwidth, in which he warns of a bandwidth cartel and suggests alternate technologies with which to move information.

—  Fun fact: Terrible war criminal Radovan Karadzic (the only person to ever be indicted on genocide charges at the Hague) is a proud graduate attendee of the Columbia med school.

— Today is Sunil Gulati’s 49th birthday! Bwog has now wished Gulati a happy birthday three years in a row

— In other alum news, Eric Holder (currently of Obama’s VP vetting committee and formerly deputy attorney general under Clinton) is also a Columbia alum. And while you can’t friend him on Facebook, you can keep in touch with him via the GOP’s horrible and embarrassing “Barackbook.”

— Steve Cohen, executive director of the Earth Institute, wrote in the Observer about his hopes for the Hudson, namely that one day we will be able to all happily swim in it.

Hat tips all around to Josh Mathew, Sara Vogel, “anonymous obviously”, Kazim Panjwani.

  1. Showtime Watcher

    Another interesting tidbit: Anyone who has been watching 'Weeds' knows that the character of the Mayor of Tiujaiuna, who helps supply protagonist Nancy Botwin, is a Columbia grad

  2. okay

    actually Karadzic did not graduate from columbia med school. As the article you linked to states, he was here for a year. Apparently he was completing "further medical studies" according to wikipedia. We don't want to take more credit for him than we need too.

  3. wtf?  

    Doesn't seem like there's anything wrong with Barackbook, other than its happening to expose a few rather inconvenient facts about Obama's circle of advisers. Is it really "horrible and embarrassing" to legitimately criticize Obama, Bwog?

    • WTF to you, sir

      No, legitimate criticism is OK. It's the crypto-racism and slick McCain press releases that Mr. McCain had previously promised not to utilize.

      Literally all of McCain's advisers are current or former lobbyists--granted, Obama employs lobbyists as well, but only on the regional/state level--they don't dictate his policy, as with McCain.

      I guess you've got to play by the rules of the game before you change them.

  4. my favorite part  

    is the William Ayers bit. That's just absurd.

  5. 5 again  

    also...he went to Columbia (TC), too. wait until the RNC connects the dots - Hussein Obama...William Ayers...Radovan Karadzic. shit man.

  6. hahaha  

    silly americans. Keep bickering about your flagpins and old age while your economy crumbles and your soldiers die.

  7. ungrateful  

    How many times has Sunil wished Bwog a happy birthday?

    Zero.

  8. ew no  

    curl up and die
