Presenter: Radia Perlman Abstract: It would be nice if a participant in a distributed system were in one of two states: working perfectly, or halting. But this is not always true. Compromised systems, or even non-malicious problems (bugs, misconfiguration, hardware problems), can cause a system to continue operating, but doing the wrong things. This talk describes several examples of problems in which a small number (perhaps even one) of malfunctioning trusted participants can disrupt operations, and approaches that will make the system resilient. There is no single approach, because problems are different, which is why looking at several examples is useful. About Radia: Radia Perlman is a Fellow at EMC Corporation. Her work has had a major impact on how computer networks work today. Her inventions in network routing makes today’s Internet more robust, scalable, and self-configuring. She designed IS-IS which many ISPs still use as a method of computing routes. Her spanning tree algorithm transformed Ethernet from something that could support just a few hundred nodes within a building to something that can support hundreds of thousands of nodes. More recently, she invented TRILL, a technology that removes the data path restrictions in Ethernet so that data can travel over shortest paths, multiple paths, and use traffic engineering. She has also made major contributions to network security; making networks robust even if some of the components are malicious, DDOS (distributed denial of service) defense, authentication, authorization, and time-based guaranteed expiration of data from storage. As an undergraduate at MIT she developed a version of the educational robotics language LOGO, including special input devices, suitable for very young children (3-5 years old), making her also known as a pianeer of "tangible computing" (creating programs out of physical objects). She is the author of “Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and Internetworking Protocols”, and coauthor of “Network Security: Private Communication in a Public World”, both of which are popular textbooks. She holds over 100 issued patents. She has received numerous industry awards including lifetime achievement awards from ACM’s SIGCOMM and Usenix, election to National Academy of Engineering, induction into the Internet Hall of Fame, and an honorary doctorate from KTH (Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden). She has a PhD in computer science from MIT.

WHAT IS LIFT UP AUTISM? Two years ago, on October 19, 2013 Josh Everett, TrainHeroic, and the more than 350 boxes in the CrossFit community rallied together in spectacular fashion to support the Autism community in a worldwide workout event called Lift Up Luke. This "competition for a cause" specifically sought to support early diagnosis and treatment of Autism, raise funds for the Autism Tree Project Foundation in San Diego, and most importantly, turn a global spotlight on the measured and severe impact of Autism on families and individuals around the world. This year, we're upping the ante and doubling down our efforts to take the impact of the event to another level. And with your help, we can double the impact. On September 19th, 2015 we’re rebooting the event under the more inclusive name of “Lift Up Autism” and calling athletes and coaches everywhere to mobilize around this cause. This year, we're working to bring 500+ Boxes, 7500+ Athletes, and 50 countries around the world together for a day of community, awareness, and action.

Join adult (18+) players of all ages and skill levels in a long-established Sunday morning pickup game in Framingham - 9 innings of wood-bat baseball, every week through October. Players come whatever week they want to make it out and we typically draw near 20 players. Everyone plays an equal number of innings so there's always room for new players. We all play as hard as we're able but all know that that errors get made, there aren't scouts in the stands, it isn't our ticket to the majors, and that safety and sportsmanship are the priorities. It is competitive, but only to the best of each player's ability and everyone understands that we all need to leave the field safely - making it a good fun yet still competitive atmosphere.
