It’s been nearly a year since I posted here and much has changed. The obvious and most important change is a second new addition to our family which I’ve been blogging about elsewhere. On the work front I was able to publish a paper about some of my work studying the Availability in Globally Distributed Storage Systems at Google last year. This is an exciting space given the growth of cloud based storage services and sophisticated distributed storage software.
I’ve been blogging a little more regularly about work-related topics on Google company blogs, with four posts so far this year :
- Integrating R with C++: Rcpp, RInside, and RProtobuf
- Google at USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI ’10)
- FreeBSD’s Summer Highlights
- Notes from useR! 2010
As you can see I’ve been working on data analysis, distributed cloud storage, and open source, along with some other projects I’m not yet able to talk about. I’ll try to post more updates about some of my interests and side projects in the remainder of the year.
