As an undergraduate, I was given coauthor status on a Ph.D. professor's
article. I had collected the data; he converted it to a paper. He talked
to me about his interpretation. I didn't have anything useful to add,
and I would never have thought of publishing, but he was an academic so
publishing was important to him. OTOH, he already had tenure -- so maybe
it was just a present from him to me.
