Marc Schoenwiesner joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Marc Schoenwiesner has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

Although there is a certain seasonal variation in the length of my hair, its average length and volume might qualify for the LFHCfS due to the duration of the Canadian winter. Also, it is “flowing” only in the sense of a radiating vector field.

Juan-Carlos Perez-Cortes has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I’m a computer scientist working in the field of Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning. I have been pursuing a billion-dolar project to design an algorithm that identifies a luxuriant flowing hair from a regular hair in an image taken at a distance of more than 10 miles, but so far no agency has recognized the important advancement it would be for humanity… I’ll keep trying.

Makeover for the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) site

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Fashion news! We’re giving a makeover to the website for the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS) and its conjoined clubs, The Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists™ and The Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists™.

Isaac Newton (1642-1727). Historical Honorary Member, LFHCfS

LFHCfS began in 2001 with its first member (psychologist Steven Pinker), and became so popular that it quickly grew beyond the bounds of that original little chunk of website. History ensued, highlighted by the founding of the “Former” and “Facial” clubs in 2010.  New members now appear first in the Improbable Blog’s LFHCfS category, and are later gathered into Member Galleries based on the year they were inducted. To see some technical notes about the makeover, scroll down.

LFHCfS is welcoming new members!

Do you know a scientist with the necessary qualifications? Suggest that they join the LFHCfS!

LFHCfS members Slater, Payette, Norvin, & Gates, et al., are eager to welcome new members

Tech notes about the the makeover to the LFHCfS web site

The makeover aims to do several things:

  • Create all these member galleries (here are 2013 and 2012)
  • Expound on the club history and the perks of membership
  • Explain how the club has expanded to become three (3) conjoined clubs, each with the same LFHCfS acronym
  • Make it easier to read the site (it was packed in like an old warehouse before)
  • Add links to hair-related resources
  • Re-vamp the Historical Honorary Members page
  • Make it easier for the early members to link to their own listing (read: brag) by giving each listing a unique HTML anchor tag:

Each member’s unique anchor tag will be their last name-hyphen-first initial.  This means that David Wilson can link to his listing by finding himself in Gallery 6, and then adding #wilson-d to the end of that URL. For example: http://www.improbable.com/projects/hair/hair-club006.html#wilson-d
