That's DOCTOR Ballmer to you

In the process of researching some stuff on Ming Hsieh (DISCLOSURE: I am employed by a company that competes against a company founded by Ming Hsieh), I uncovered a list of people who have received honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degrees from the University of Southern California.

Top of the list for May 2011 - Steven Ballmer. (Remember that Ballmer, unlike Bill Gates, DID graduate from Harvard.)

Other recipients of USC honorary doctorates include William J. Bratton (who received a Doctor of Laws), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Iger, Norman Lear, Ted Koppel, Clint Eastwood, and Antonio Villaraigosa.

Personal note - Ming Hsieh, unlike many of the other people on the list, actually attended USC as a student, receiving a BS and an MSEE. It's fair to say that he put his USC degree to good use.
