Why not? Out-of-staters are not verboten (although there was some
concern at first). U Wisconsin's Dick Askey and U Rochester's Ralph
Raimi believed it to be important enough to participate - given
California's national influence (and their travel plus per diem costs
were reimbursed), in-staters of stature, too, Hung-Hsi Wu of UC
Berkeley, Brian White, Stephen Kerckhoff, and Jim Milgram of
Stanford, Deborah Tepper Haimo, of UCSD and past president of the
MAA, Ted Gamlin of UCLA, UC Davis, UC Riverside, et al. And these
are among a *very* short list of people, only 11 in 1999 and 15 in
2001. Why not put in your application? A lifetime chance to rub
shoulders with some movers-and-shakers of genuine mathematics and
effect the future of our nation's mathematics education
direction! Maybe even (unlikely, we both know) convince them that
"technology" is to be embraced at every level with no specified
indicators of how, why, or any assessment of its effectiveness but
give it your best shot! Such stuff is worthy of support from our
fearless NCTM so maybe you can get California to buy into this cult
religion too?! Why not at least try? What's to be lost (beyond
self-recognition of your own arrogance, of course)?
