Planet Courant

Filed under: Tech — Chris @ 6:02 pm

Am I the only one who would prefer not to see unfiltered posts and SVN commit logs on Planet Courant?

I’m not saying my posts have been all-time greats, but we need more signal and less noise… Could we convince at least one member of each research group to blog regularly about what’s going on with their colleagues? Tutorials on cool open-source software developed at Courant? Abstracts of Courant people’s publications? Reports on conferences that Courant people have attended?



  1. Good to hear feedback on the latest addition of feeds to Planet Courant. I agree that adding raw feeds may introduce too much noise.

    On the other hand, the SVN feed of the Erigone project is there because it is partly developed at Courant. (Whether it is an interesting project is up to the reader.) However, blogging about it may make for more interesting reading rather than SVN logs. The only problem is in convincing the people of Courant to write regularly. In fact, you can help us by starting to do so.

    I’ll try floating the idea at the first meeting of “The Club of Turing Machine Enthusiasts”, March 25 2009, 7-9 PM, WWH 109. Feel free to join us.

  2. Trishank, I’m interested in Erigone and would definitely be interested in hearing more about it. (In fact, I’ve been meaning to ask you if you’d like to give a talk on it in the ACSys seminar sometime.) But SVN commits are too fine-grained for me. I don’t always look at all the commit logs for projects I’m contributing to!
