Which Yak people have been in the news recently?

My small claim to media fame is that I was interviewed on TechTV's The Screen Savers show on May 23, 2000. Talked a little about the Beowulf cluster we've been building from recycled parts in East Oakland, and gave a demonstration of the distributed rendering system that we're running.

However, the real answer to this question is always "Macki". :-P
