In memoriam: John H. Barton
I just learned that Professor John H. Barton of Stanford Law School died in a bicycling accident (possibly a hit-and-run) in August. John, who bridged the gap between law and science, was an expert in International Law relating to technology. He also served as my dissertation supervisor. John was a great teacher, always insightful, and a constant source of encouragement. Without that encouragement, I probably would never have completed my dissertation and first book. I will always be in his debt, and will remember him fondly.
