a week in cambridge

this week has been bonkers - we had a great talk on monday by Fabio Bustamante about his use of crowdsourcing in bittorrent clients to measure the internet
then we had this stochastic nets workshop which Richard Gibbens organised which was fantastic, with loads of great talks on resource pooling, P2P systems and so on, then we had this workshop on pricing an auctions which Peter Key organised with some great talks on mechanism design and social networks, and now we have this biowire 2009 workshop which has some superb talks on the natural world and its "network" algorithms, and there was a really great semianr by Andrew Birrell on the history of concurrency!

enough for a whole year
