Diego Doval

In next week's InfoWorld column, I quote Diego Doval, CTO of clevercactus. Or rather, I meant to quote him. For reasons that escape me, I attributed Diego's remarks to Diego Rivera, the famous Mexican muralist. I have no earthly idea how I managed to transpose the living computer scientist and the dead artist. Since Diego Rivera won't be reading this, I'll direct my apology to Diego Doval. For the record:

I am co-founder and CTO of clevercactus ltd. I submitted my PhD thesis (in the area of self-organizing networks) last year to Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. I was previously a teaching assistant at TCD's Computer Science department. I graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA where I did research in the Software Engineering Research Group. I worked at Fuego Corp. before going to the US, then after graduation I was a Research Associate in the Personal Systems Group at IBM's TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York, and later at Mindstech International in Silicon Valley.

DIEGO RIVERA (1886-l957), muralist painter, was one of the greatest artists in the XXth century. Born in Guanajuato Mexico, in 1892 he moved to Mexico City with his family. He studied in the San Carlos Academy and in the carving workshop of artist José Guadalupe Posada, whose influence was decisive.
