Yesterday Miss Jiwaku had fun searching for references to me on the Korean internets. She found a lot of stuff about my relationship with SF, and participation in various events in Korean fandom (including a blog connected to the new Fantastique website that apparently was translating some posts of mine about Korean SF), but the only reference she found to a student writing about me was this one.
Something about a student asking me the difference between thesis and hypothesis, and telling a student, “No, you don’t have a thesis.” The funny thing is, I swear I remember the inquiry, and it wasn’t by email. It was in a class, just last week, and I think I even know who made the inquiry. (That’s not to say she wrote the post, mind you.)
In any case, I was surprised that this is the only reference Miss Jiwaku found. I assumed there’d be a number of students complaining about the homework I assign and so on. Maybe those complaints are posted on cafes that aren’t publicly searchable? Ha!
