In the eyes of rest of the world Gabor Temes is a brilliant researcher, educator, prolific author, and inventor of many things spanning diverse areas such as network theory, circuit analysis, analog filters, switched capacitor circuits, and more famously delta-sigma data converters. But to us, above all, he is the most wonderful friend, colleague and collaborator ? the Shannon limit of collegiality. Gabor personifies the rare combination of being the smartest and the nicest person to work with. These characteristics have endeared him to his colleagues and students alike. When we joined Oregon State University some fifteen years ago, he embraced us immediately, as a colleague (Un-Ku) and as a student (Pavan), and got us involved in many of his research activities. This was instrumental in each of us getting an excellent start to our careers in academia. Gabor has offered similar opportunities over the past two decades to numerous other junior faculty members in the department and has been a big part of their success. He is a truly a great role model for mentoring.
