Just getting back from a great visit to Ann Arbor to work with Maxwell Young, Seth Pettie and Valerie King.  Perhaps the most important discovery at Ann Arbor for several of us was the existence of sour beer.

I also gave a talk on our polynomial time Byzantine agreement result.  The talk went well with many questions and ideas.  Unfortunately, though it seems like an hour is the bare minimum to convey the problem and ideas of our algorithm – kind of worried about what to do in 20 minutes at STOC.

Talk slides are now up on my web page.  Comments welcome!
