Thanks to the effort of the tireless Borja Sotomayor for the
local ACM chpater as well as the good folks at Google in Chicago, we had a
local kickoff meeting for this year’s Google Summer of Code at Google’s
Chicago office. A few accepted GSoC students, mentors, and a few Google
engineers gave short presentations to a bunch of ACM-affiliated students from
U of C, Northwestern, DePaul, IIT, UIC, … I gave my first ever ‘lightning
talk’ — on R and the GSoC — and after chatting a bit more rushed home to
catch the end of the amazing triple-overtime win of the Bulls over the
Celtics. Go Bulls for the improbable game seven in Boston!
