Regarding my Name

My full name is Dimitrios Ioannis Diochnos. Ioannis is the name of my father and that's why it is usually omitted or simply stated as "I." Moreover, Dimitrios is actually my formal name, but it is hardly ever used in practice. In more than 99.9% of the cases you have to skip the last "o", therefore my first name is Dimitris. Finally, when you are talking directly to me you are supposed to omit the last "s" as well (this holds for all hellenic male names), hence the proper way to call me is: "Dimitri".

Every now and then I find myself having to describe what I do or what Computer Science is about. The following papers are suggested and aim to shed light in questions like these.

John McCarthy

Claude E. Shannon
