Algorithmicist in the Field: Google+ Weekly

Labor day weekend is a good landmark, interns are gone and stalled projects in research labs will restart; students are back at universities and new semester will begin; summer will end and fall will burst out; it is time for last hikes and new beginnings, etc.

I will be on video hangout on Google+ every week, Wednesdays 9 AM -- 10 AM EDT (NY Time). Anyone can join me on the hangout. The idea is, we can talk algorithms in theory, systems, field or otherwise; we can talk problems, solutions, patents, techniques or angst about the state of the world; we can look ahead and seek directions or look behind and summarize; we can talk courses, careers, conferences or about the cult of research; we can be students, professors, researchers, and be in any part of the world.

What you need to do, if you want to join me in my hangout:
  • Have a google+ account. If you dont have one, get an invite or email me at
  • Go to Google+, add me (muthubyshance) to your circle and join my hangout anytime during the period specified above. If you cant find me or have problems, email me at You will also get updates from me on google+ if I am in one of your circles.
This is obviously an experiment, but for some time, I wanted a channel to have real time conversation about our issues in addition to the existing channels of the single speaker on the pulpit mode (blogs/lectures) or the post and seek mode (of or hunt and find the proper subset of people mode (of live conferences).

ps: This will start on Wed, Sept 7.
