My Childhood Role Model

I remember reading GEB in High School and being fiercely disappointed the first few times I had the chance to heard Hofstadter talk in person. He seems to have focussed in on minutiae of what he considers essential to intelligence (like the ability to recognize letters in different fonts, a project he spent years working on at IU), and let the big ideas he explored in GEB go by the wayside.
