I In Fall of 2017 I am teaching Comp 40: Machine Structure and Assembly Language Programming. In Spring of 2017 I taught COMP 117: Internet-Scale Distributed systems. That course was until 2017 numbered COMP 150-IDS.
The best way to reach me is via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. I read that regularly, including when I am away from home or office.
My Tufts office is:
Halligan Hall 214
161 College Ave
Medford, MA, 02155
I prefer e-mail whenever that's quick enough for you, but for cases where it's urgent that you speak to me, I have established a Google Voice number 617-506-3994 that you can call or text. When you call, it will ask your name, and then it will try ringing my mobile, my home, etc. Be patient, it can take a minute or so while it tries my phones.
My office hours for Fall term 2017 are Tuesday & Thursday, afternoons in Halligan 214 as follows:
- Students in COMP 40 can meet with me starting after lecture in Cabot ASEAN auditorium at 2:45 and walk back toward Halligan with me.
- I should typically be back in my office by 3:15 or so and will be available to meet with students there until at least 4 PM.
Note that the CS dept colloquim is Thursdays after class, so I may occasionally move office hours to after that. I will announce in advance in class and on Piazza if that will be happening. Email me, or for urgent matters use the phone number above.
Work outside of Tufts
Until summer of 2013 I was for several years the chair of the World Wide Web Consortium's Technical Architecture Group; the TAG is the senior steering committee responsible for the architectural integrity of the World Wide Web. I retired from IBM in 2010, and I hold the honorary title of IBM Distinguished Engineer Emeritus.
Those of us who worked at W3C tend to find a lot of our specification drafts and e-mails posted publicly on the Web. That greatly increases our search karma so... if you do a Web search for my name, most of what comes back will indeed be about me.
