After 22 (or was it 23?) years of formal education, I am no longer a student. I defended my dissertation on August 9 and deposited it on August 20. I will post a copy of my dissertation online shortly.
It feels good to finally be done.
I start work at Galois shortly. Until then, I am just learning how to get around Portland and hopefully riding some bicycles. I am also going to spend some time catching up on some of my open source projects. There are several outstanding bugs that I ignored while I was finishing my dissertation. I might even make some releases of some software while I am at it.
