Jon Kleinberg won a MacArthur grant. As I just mailed a coworker:
Kleinberg is a stud. I still have (somewhere around here) a video of a talk he gave at my school when I was a sophomore or so. I was impressed enough to go to the trouble of ripping the streaming-only video my school provided.
I wish I had more time/motivation/understanding to be able to follow more of his area of research...
