IFIP Networking 2012 conference

I can't really write a lot about it as I was only on the last session which was a celebration of the 40 years that Working Group 6 has been doing networking - quite impressive - I really didn't realize how joined up all the early thinking was - there was a great set of keynotes, especially by Dina Katabi (preview f some of her SIGCOMM 2012 work) and Pablo Rodriguez (some really insightful observations on extracting happiness from location data in cell phone logs- yes, privacy controversy was discussed and some of the excessive political power wielded by the big Cloud Gangs, surprisingly in a very impassioned talk by Louis Pouzin (the guy who invented datagrams, no less!). Good time in Prague, city of Robots and Golems:)
