Personalizing your author profile: update
Earlier, I wrote a post about updating your Author Profile Page on MathSciNet. In his most recent newsletter, Donald Knuth makes a nice mention of the profile page, in particular to the full-name and native script feature. For those of you who know Knuth’s books, it should come as no surprise that the native script feature was inspired by Knuth. Indeed, Professor Knuth was very generous and helped us out tremendously with the feature. Thank you Donald Ervin Knuth (高銘纳)!

I’m happy that you and Donald Knuth are pushing full names. I have tried to get as complete names as possible for the lists on the Erdos Number Project website (just google that phrase to find it). Many years ago I had an argument with the editor of The American Mathematical Monthly about their policy of using only initials in their reference lists for articles, but he would not budge; a glance at a recent issue shows that they still have the same silly policy (as does Mathematics Magazine). Sigh.
