Leibniz is "Tom -7"? (08 Mar 2004 at 21:10)
According to the Mathematical Genealogy Project, I've got some pretty famous ancestors. (This is by student/advisor relationship.) Viz:

Murphy - Harper/Crary - Constable - Kleene - Church - Oswald Veblen - EH Moore - HA Newton - Michel Chasles - Poisson - Lagrange - Euler - Johan Bernoulli - Jacob Bernoulli - Leibniz - ?

Maybe the lambda calculus and the calculus of variations (ie, high school calculus) have some relation after all...

Wow, pretty cool ancestry. Alas, my ancestry is no longer impressive.

Woah, cool math-linky site. Although I didn't have a math advisor (only a comp sci one), my Calc III (or was it Calc II?) professor's advisor ancestry also branches from Oswald Veblen et al.

OOh, I feel like remixing Cactus Hand from Examine Machines & Enrich.

I think the upcoming 100th AAD is a good occasion to put AAD no. 1 Spastic Moose - Then Come The Chunks online.
Don't you? :-)

I'd love to, but Marc has the tapes and has been promising to mix it for years...
