I get asked to do a decent number of conference paper reviews, and surprisingly, some of those conferences have asked me to review in subsequent years. One such conference didn’t just ask me to review again, but bestowed the honor of making me part of their advisory board. I accepted, and they sent me a nice letter as an official statement. Except they sent it to the wrong person. They addressed it to Mr. Cherish.
So…what to do?
I at first considered responding and pointing out their error. (Hey, they had a 90% chance of getting it correct, right?) However, I’ve decided instead that I will keep it as is and frame it. I think it’s funnier that way.
