- invitations to guest blog at CCCBlog and GigaOM
- enthusiasm to write about our new Lincoln and BOOM research projects
- voting with my feet: Open Notebook Science over Double Blind Reviewing
In defense of my Internet cred, I’m not totally late to the game. Back in undergrad days, I spent a lot of time writing Usenet articles: in fact I founded (i.e. collected votes for) the jazz/blues newsgroup rec.music.bluenote, which was the first Internet discussion group on the topic. It had a pretty great run in its day. Blogging isn’t much different.
But I’ll stick to technical computer science topics here — a bit of trendwatching, along with updates and thoughts on the research we’re doing in my group at Berkeley, and what we’re seeing from colleagues and friends in research and in the field. I’ll kick that off soon.
Undoubtedly lots of this will be beta quality. That’s the point, right?
