Well, I don't really know that, and I've already been burned by two John McCarthys, one in linguistics, one in CS. But the name "Adele Goldberg" is far less common, and if we add OOP as well, it seems kinda unlikely that there is another and distinct Adele Goldberg. The sf author Alfred Bester once said of one of his early stories. "I have absolutely no memory of writing this story. However, the name at the top is mine and the Social Security number mentioned in the first paragraph is also mine. Either could be a coincidence, but not both." -- John Cowan Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis um dies! / Schliesst euer Aug vor heiliger Schau, Denn er genoss vom Honig-Tau / Und trank die Milch vom Paradies. -- Coleridge / Politzer
