metal

We had a smallish party last night*. I wasn’t involved in the planning so I was a little surprised at the number of people who showed up. I asked Ken (whom I recognized but didn’t really know) what he did before The Company and discovered he worked on metacompilation (aka metal, coverity, notoriously responsible for finding Linux bugs like in this mail of his). We talked a bit about his work and it made me a little wistful like hearing about Chris at his “Probabilistic Models of Cognition” workshop.
