+1 on the distributed systems stuffs.  I&#39;ve been interested in that for a while, although I haven&#39;t done anything with it in a few years.<br><br clear="all">Christie<br><br>---<br> Knowledge will bind you but ultimately set you free.<br>

  I&#39;d like to see the emergence of a distributed systems<br>
  discussion group at Noisebridge.<br>
<br>
  The blog &quot;Paper Trail&quot; does a good job of reviewing<br>
  distributed systems -- for example, the author spent a fair<br>
  amount of time discussing consensus protocols -- as well as<br>
  touching on foundational results.<br>
<br>
  I&#39;ve put a fair amount of time and energy into ironing out a<br>
  consistent logging protocol (consensus in another guise) and<br>
  figuring out how to shard it. I need to do a writeup on how<br>
  recovery and membership changes work; then I&#39;m done.<br>
