:`( This makes me truly sad. Greg was an amazing man, a real tinkerer at heart with a love of invention. He was an inspiration and hero to the rest of us aspiring mad scientists. 
 
I am very sorry to report that Greg Chesson, of Ahteros, SGI, Bell Labs, and most recently Google, has died after an illness. Last year he received the Univ. of Illinois Alumni Award for Distinguished Service from the College of Engineering (https://cs.illinois.edu/news/chesson-receives-alumni-award-distinguished-service). His role in the early days of UNIX development was too extensive to even begin listing here. I fondly remember hanging out with Greg at Bell Labs Murray Hill when I'd come east to visit. Back in the day, he had a featured role in a Bell Labs recruiting video, linked to this post. He will be greatly missed. Condolences and best wishes to his loved ones. Peace.

It is always so sad when someone you knew, worked beside, respected, and laughed with leaves you behind.

Here's to your memory, Greg!

The problem with almost every David Bowie cover ever is, they just make me want to listen to the Davie Bowie versions of the song.

Sometimes the"ism's" have to be set aside and you then get to live in the real world. Come on Top Gear.

I'm fairly certain that the stormtrooper is not a regular fixture at Google datacenters.
 
Frankly, this is still one of my favorite Google-related photos.

Interesting read on network stack coding/tuning.

#ns
Last week during a casual conversation I overheard a colleague saying: "The Linux network stack is slow! You can't expect it to do more than 50 thousand packets per second per core!" That got me thinking. While I agree that...

Everything I've ever heard by The New Pornographers sounds like it belongs to the soundtrack of a Wes Anderson film.

Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise

Thanks to Ambibox, an arduino, and a strip of software controllable LEDs, I now have an office lamp that I can control with keyboard shortcuts.

They're putting a woman on the $10 bill? Awesome. Let's petition to make it Grace Hopper!

Grace Hopper is important, but within the tech community. I'm still rooting for Harriet Tubman.

I wonder if anyone's going to change their minds about fraking regulation after this.

Two months ago, 100 homes in Arlington had to be evacuated as fracking fluid spilled out of a drilling site onto the city streets.

Is it just me or is there an east coast bias in sports broadcasting? I used to feel it but ignore it during the NFL season, but now I'm noticing it with the Warriors as well.
