New material posted on my website

A bunch of amorphous computing work:

  • An extended abstract and poster that Jonathan Bachrach and I took to DCOSS 2006 in June.
  • A presentation on manifold programming semantics, presented at the Space-Oriented Computing seminar at Dagstuhl.
  • A brief overview of the amorphous medium approach, presented to new grad students at the CSAIL Open House.

Also, I've put up the abstract and slides that I gave at this year's CSAIL Student Workshop, "Sidestepping Impossibility: Combat Consensus in the Assassins' Guild," a fun piece extending my previous Assassins' Guild analysis.

Why a blog?

Why am I starting a blog? A few days ago, a friend mentioned that he thought I should put one together so that I could periodically announce papers and other creative output that friends and colleagues might be interested in. I agree, and thus a blog.

If you're here, you probably know me. Welcome. I recommend subscribing to this blog as a news-feed and expecting infrequent updates, on the order of once a month.
