The Leland Stanford Junior Oak

oakweekendToday, on a day filled with alumni memories, I wish to remember the oldest living tree on campus: the Leland Stanford Junior Oak. Formerly known as the ‘Alumni Oak’ or the ‘Pioneer Oak’, this 227-year old tree collapsed in 2008. However, as in so much of our history, the story does not end there. Though cut down to the trunk the tree survived, and has been making a slow comeback, watched over by the Grounds Department. Located on Serra Street at the corner of the former GSB, still protected by its concrete retaining wall, this much-shortened tree remains an invaluable part of Stanford (and GSB) history. Long may it grow!

Panel event, Oct 20

Please join us at Noon, Monday, October 20 in C-102 for a panel event, Computing at the GSB: Laying the Foundations. Organized by the Oral History Program, the panel will feature Jeffrey Moore (moderator), Charles Bonini, James Miller III and William Sharpe discussing how computing entered into research and teaching. The program will last 90 minutes.

High Media Multitaskers

Those of us familiar with Stanford professor Cliff Nass‘s groundbreaking 2009 study on media multitasking will be interested to read this article from today’s Wall Street Journal detailing the results of a new study conducted by and about teens at an Oregon High School.  Nass, who died almost one year ago, was actually consulting with Sarayu Caulfield and Alexandra Ullmer, the two students who conducted the study, at the time of his death.  To consider his interest in how it turned out is to feel his loss all over again.  Nass’ 2009 study indicated that college students were not good at multitasking, even when they were certain they were.  Caufield and Ullmer’s study found the same to be mostly true of their peers, with the exception of a subset they label “high media multitaskers.”  These students (60 of the 403 participants) proved to excel at multitasking, performing better at the assigned tasks while also listening to music and using smart phones.  Why the difference?  Ullmer posits the research suggests that digital natives, who’ve never known anything but media multitasking, are better adapted and thus better at it.  Time and further research will tell.


Panel event, October 20

On Monday October 20 from Noon to 1:00 the GSB Oral History Program will present a panel discussion on the introduction of computing and its incorporation into the life of the school. Titled “Computing at the GSB: Laying the Foundations”, the event will be held in room C-102 at the Knight Management Center, and is open to everyone. Panelists will include Jeffrey Moore (moderator), Charles Bonini, James Miller III and William Sharpe, who will reflect on how computing became important for teaching and research at the GSB.
