Tenure & Thanks

Dear everyone,

My department voted recently to recommend me for tenure here at Pitt. While this still needs approval from the Dean, it’s essentially settled.

Open Babel and Avogadro were indeed key pieces in my tenure package and I know from the department chair that external evaluations were quite complimentary about the contributions of Open Babel and Avogadro to the broader community.

I can’t take credit for that. So I want to thank everyone for your help. I think we’re doing some great things. Case in point, the Avogadro paper has 62 citations in 2013 and Open Babel has 109.

I’ll send out some “future plans” next week. We need some new releases!

Thanks!
-Geoff

Hi Geoff,

Congratulations, it was a pleasure being the first member of your
group too! The 1.1.1 release for Avogadro is close, a few things we
need to work out but nothing major.

I will be working on improving communication about the releases of
Avogadro 2 on the general lists/wiki too once I have some big changes
of my own taken carer of…

Sincerely,

Marcus
