In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen it yet, the OLS 2005 CFP has been published. Go forth and submit a proposal!

OSDI ’04 starts today at San Francisco. I wish I was there, but alas, I’m not. Instead I’ll write about it on my blog!

The program looks very interesting, but the papers don’t appear to be online. Hopefully in the future.
