The 2019 class of fellows of the American Mathematical Society is now out:

There are surprisingly many new fellows with a theoretical computer science connection, including Saugata Basu, Bonnie Berger, Aravind Srinivasan, Moshe Vardi, and Eric Vigoda.

@hexbienium Shouldn't have been much of a surprise after the Salem Prize and the distinct distances breakthrough, but yes, it's good to see deserving people get recognized for it.

@11011110 oh, yes, I'm not well-informed enough to predict these things with confidence or say when they're surprising--it was just nice to see someone on the list whose work (on the distinct-distances problem) I'm somewhat familiar with.
