Dennis Pearl's Statistical Buffet project was nominated by Microsoft to receive a 2003 Computerworld Honors 21st Century Achievement Award. These awards are presented annually to ten organizations, institutions or special projects "whose impact on the information technology revolution has been judged exceptionally innovative, particularly effective, and especially worth of emulation."
As a designated Laureate, Dennis was honored at a Medal Presentation Ceremony in San Francisco on April 6, 2003. On April 15, it was announced that the Statistical Buffet project had been selected by a panel of independent judges as one of seven national finalists in the Education and Academia category.
Others who worked with Dennis on this project include Roger Woodard, Justin Slauson, and Deb Rumsey. More information may be obtained at http://cwheroes.org.
