This month the TRIZ-journal published a letter from MATRIZ informing the world that Polygraph Polygraphovich Sharikov (a.k.a. Michail Rubin) was promoted to the President of MATRIZ. TRIZ really work wonders ! When The Master (a.k.a. Altshuller) created Sharikov, he did not expect him to advance further than Commissar of Cat Control. TRIZ outperformed his bold expectations. Long life to TRIZ !
