The April 3, 2007 news article about the Department of Defense investigation into MIT's Lincoln Laboratory did not make clear the role of Brandon B. Godfrey from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. He was the DoD investigator and author of the report.

The April 3, 2007 news article about the William Lowell Putnam Math Competition incorrectly named the three MIT students who were Putnam Fellows in 2005. Oleg I. Golberg '08, Daniel M. Kane '07, and Matthew M. Ince '08 were Putnam Fellows. According to Professor of Mathematics Hartley Rogers Jr., Ince was unsure about his availability for the 2006 competition. Thus, Kuat T. Yessenov '08, who had the next highest 2005 score, was named to the 2006 MIT team in Ince's place.
