Winter School presentation
Back in January I make a two day presentation on the evolution of distributed systems at CUSO Winter School. The audience was a mixture of students and professors with a variety of backgrounds (most not in distributed systems research). So I had a great opportunity to start with a blank slate and try to give an historical background as well as comparing and contrasting with different approaches. The feedback during the event was great, but also the act of just sitting down and having to create the presentation helped coalesce a lot of things that I've worked through over the past 20 years.
