| Some confusion seems to have struck the Internet about how the author's surname ought to be spelled, with a landslide majority voting for "Kerr."
As the author in question, let me opine that, while both "Kerr" and "Carr" are excellent surnames, my own family has begun it with a "K" and an "A" since it was Karmilowicz (American pronunciation karMILLoWITS, Polish, karmeeWUHvitch). True, a cousin maintained that the "m" should be "n" and shortened his version of the name to Karnel (karNELL), but I never heard anyone in the family argue for "Ker..."
Seeing that a search on my name turns up what looks to me like a lot of entries (though no doubt minimal by Internet standards, and many of them surely about someone else), I have finally decided that one of them might as well be my own and thus -- dare I say? -- "official." After all, Teilhard de Chardin foresaw with relish a giant network of interpersonal connections, sounding almost as if he glimpsed the Internet years before it actually existed.
