The Zachary Karate Club Club (or Award, if you prefer)

Aric Hagberg, Cosma Shalizi, and Aaron Clauset have just created the Zachary Karate Club Club (or Award, if you prefer). Membership in this exclusive Club is awarded to "the first scientist at any conference on networks who uses Zachary's karate club".

Here is Aaron Clauset's tweet announcing the inception of the Club. The inaugural inductee was Cris Moore, who is currently in possession of the coveted trophy representing his induction. (Naturally, karate is depicted on this trophy.) This trophy --- and perhaps other, similar, ones --- will be passed along at subsequent conferences and workshops on networks.

(Tip of the cap to Aaron for his e-mail letting me know about this.)
