And the Founder of Quinnipiac University is...
Posted by Sam at 5:42 PM
Right... so I don't want to jinx it, but as of right now (actually, as of February 26, 2007), I am, according to the all-knowing brain-in-a-jar that is Wikipedia, the founder of Quinnipiac University.
Yep. It's right there in the History section, second sentence in. It reads, "Quinnipiac University is a private, coeducational, nonsectarian institution of higher education. Originally known as the Connecticut College of Commerce, it was founded in 1929 by Samuel H. Cohen as a small business college..."
1929. Damn. I'm looking pretty good despite being almost 80!
I guess I should update my resume to reflect my former position as University Founder. Unfortunately, I will be unable to provide references... because they're all probably dead.
I don't know who made the actual edit (I do have my suspicions, though). But anyway, I have to go now. I'm off to the bursar's office. Being the founder, I assume that I'm entitled to a tuition reimbursement... or at the very least, a free bobble-head.
(What makes this inaccuracy all the more ironic, is that last semester I wrote a paper commending the Wikipedia community for its accuracy... promoting the notion that, by the collaborative authoring of worldly knowledge, accuracy will prevail! Clearly, I was wrong. But I'm not giving back my A. Oh... and just in case Wikipedia ever catches up with itself, and reverts to a previous iteration, here is a .pdf of the Quinnipiac University Wikipedia entry as it exists today.)
