Ithaca

Spent the weekend in Ithaca visiting college friends. Somewhat colder than the city, but not miserably so. A very pleasant break from the routine, although work has certainly come crashing back this week. Come see me at TA3M this evening!

Stormking

Visited the Stormking Sculpture Garden north of New York City today with friends from College who have made their way out east. This part of the country can also be pretty, although in a different and much flatter way than Seattle. It has also already gotten colder than a normal winter, which is quite a shame.

Columbia

I spent the last couple days in a workshop at Columbia University. First time I remember being there, and a nice place. I’ve heard lots of stories from my parents, and it was quite interesting to see those fitted onto a physical location.

The network research community continues to be incredibly smart and exciting to get the opportunity to work with. This sort of workshop always makes me feel like there’s much too much to do, and tons of inspiring projects to work on.

New York

New York

I’m living in New York this fall. It has been nice to begin to hit a routine here, although there are still plenty of places to optimize. My only other previous big city experience was in Beijing, and NYC is different in many ways, but has much of the same raw energy and constant bustling that I found there. It’s been particularly interesting to see the different ways that the huge populations show themselves, and how people carve out their own niches.
