The Tech reports on tomorrow's anniversary of the Boston area's contribution to the field of weights and measures.
A Salute to Smoot.
... President of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). He has also served as chairman of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
I guess you could say that the die was cast that night ...
Oh, and thanks to Google, I now know I am 1.06 smoots tall.
Smoot wasn't done growing yet when he was employed as a unit of measure, so even he's taller than a "smoot" now!
When it came to standards, Smoot made a great ruler.
One ruler to rule them all.
eeka's tribute. eek? where you at?
