Regrouping for GDPR. This is a pre-recorded video which will be available in the workshop proceedings, so I'll give my recorder a rest until we reach the discussion stage.

We're back from lunch. While the next session records, I've been asked to make two public service announcements, primarily of interest to people within close travel distance to Oxford UK.

1) Dinner tonight. 18:30 this evening at the Chiang Mai Kitchen, Kemp Hall Passage, 130A High Street, Oxford, OX1 4DH. All welcome.

2) Community building & discussion. A walk (pub crawl?!) through the environs of Oxford. Meet at the Oxford e-Research Centre (workshop venue), 09:30 Friday for 10:00 start. Up to six miles, bus back, timing will be 'dynamic'. Again, all welcome.

Further details on the extended workshop agenda.

What temperatures are expected on Friday? Oh, only 27C? But with chance of thundery showers. Good luck.

CM - Proof of UserID ownership

That's the last of the main speakers. Next session is small group discussions, which I won't record. So that probably concludes this workshop feed. Thank you for your interest.

I also want to ask David Anderson that, don't you think it'd be beneficial for BOINC and Folding@Home if the two projects were merge? Same goals, similar technology, but currently they compete with each other. The development cycle would be much faster if the two teams were working on a single project. Thoughts?


The problem is the two systems are incompatible with one another. Furthermore, the Pande Group does not have the resources to do any kind of port to interact with BOINC.

There's been a number of posts at the Folding Forum in regards to BOINC if you want to explore the topic more.

What I am interested though is Science United. Since there is no credit system, I think it might be possible to do something as an 'Anonymous' Folding@home user (basically, you fold without creating any account and it dumps into the generic Anonymous 'account'). Of course, there is still the problem that Stanford (Pande) doesn't have the extra resources to work on that so somebody would have to be willing to do that on their own dime assuming they got the necessary permissions.

Yav

P.S. Also, Stanford is revamping their website including the stats too which would hamper efforts till such time as they ever got it completed (not a negative reflection, just a fact).

This was a very gripping read :) I still need to listen to everything, but I'm looking forward to it.

Thank you for doing all of that for us, Richard. It was most kind :)

And left it in the pub tonight. Bother. I know which pub and where I left it - I'll have to go back in the morning. And so to bed.

... will be made available by the workshop administrators after it's all over. I've suggested to David Wallom that he should try to associate the slides with these recordings in the official report.


+1.
Slides + audio will be great

I've received a PM anxious about the welfare of my umbrella. Fear not.

It made it out of the Turf, came up to the rooftop terrace bar (where we failed to see the lunar eclipse - cloud cover), and on to the Lamb & Flag - where it rested overnight, overlooked during our somewhat abrupt departure.

And from where I retrieved it the following day, still hung up in the corner of the snug where I'd left it. That says one of two things - either the cleaning team in the L&F is as slack as hell, or (and probably more likely), Oxford pubs are used to absent-minded professors leaving umbrellas, research papers, government secrets and so on behind them, and allow a reasonable time for retrieval before recycling them to the next tourist, student, or spy that needs them.

It gave me an excuse to wile away a couple of hours in the Ashmolean before the pubs opened, anyway.

I once stayed in a hotel across the street from the Ashmolean, but it was a business trip and I did not get a chance to go in. It would take a week for a good introduction anyway, but food for the next trip.

The Randolph - the place to see and be seen in Oxford, for at least the last 50 years to my personal knowledge? You must have had a generous boss!

It was AT&T (or a division thereof) at the time. I don't think it could be done today.
