Vazirani ==> ACM Fellow

Umesh Vazirani is one of the new ACM Fellows. His citation says, "For contributions to theoretical computer science and quantum computation." I'm not normally an awards groupie, so I don't know, is this the first ACM Fellow citation to explicitly mention quantum computation? A quick skim of the full list doesn't show any of the obvious Big Names...

Congrats, Umesh!
