In universities, the summer is one of travels, research, cleaning offices, making starts and friends, whatever. In research labs, things get hectic with interns and new hires. Nir Ailon joins Google Research in NY as a new hire. Bunch of interns already settling in (Tasos, Florin, Krzysztof, Smriti, Aparna, Tejas and others), some yet to come (Eddie, David), it is time for me to go to work, immediately after FCRC. Soon I will be looking ahead to the quiet Fall.
