We just published a paper at ISCA about turning sequntial programs into parallel ones. Sounds exciting? Read more about it below...

Surreal sunset, Snaefellsnes, Iceland

We were exploring West Iceland in the afternoon when we stopped near a lake. The whole landscape was rather alien to me -- very long shadows, almost no color, and those grey-ish volcanic mountains. I tried recreating that outlandish look with this image. What do you think?

I couldn't resist writing a 2013 summary post. In true geek style, it's all about numbers...

Hey, PhDs are cool -- if you don't believe it, check out this video from Philip Guo, who seems to be looking for students.

Also, I've chimed in on this discussion before, and my point of view hasn't changed since: http://blog.skanev.org/2013/03/why-not-do-phd-in-computer-science.html

Wrote some bad javascript in the last few days for a visualization. The web seems fun, but I'll probably stick to low-level things. Oh well...

I have no hope of properly writing race reports that are longer than my jolted down notes, so here's a short summary of how fall running season went for me...

Epic Icelandinc sheep

This is what happens when the sun is close to the horizon for a long time, and you try and make friends with Icelandic sheep. They epicly sprint away into the sunset.

Glacial sunrise, Shasta Wilderness, CA

This is from an attempt to climb Mt. Shasta in late August, on a small ridge between the Hotlum and Bolam glaciers. We set out for a regular alpine start around 3-4 am from our base camp and managed to get quite high for sunrise time (this is probably around 3,900-4,000 m).

We never made it to the top that weekend. Soon after the sunrise, the clouds you can see below caught up with us and we got treated to some wind and hail/snow. After a quick reality check, we decided to turn back just an hour below the peak, after having climbed close to 3,000 m of altitude. Oh well, just another reason to go back soon...
