The Cornell Chronicle has a nice article about Jon Kleinberg's Infosys Award: an award of $150,000 provided by an endowment from the Infosys Foundation.

An interview conducted by Stephen Ibaraki with Jon is available to listen to online at: http://www.stephenibaraki.com/audio/Jon_Kleinberg_Final.mp3. The 45-minute segment includes Jon's thoughts on many points including what attracted him to the field of computing, his work in the area of social network analysis, and his predictions for the future. Selected excerpts from the interview, as well as additional background, are available at: http://www.acm.org/membership/kleinberg-interview/
