In principle, I retired on 23 Oct. 2014, but in reality not a lot changed. I am still teaching, speaking around the world, and writing. But we did have a nice party.

Some people in the Dept. asked a number of my current and former students, postdocs, and colleagues near and far to describe me in one word and also to give an extended description in 30 seconds. These video clips were assembled and put on YouTube:

  One-word descriptions: http://youtu.be/Dfa0srNLD0M
30-sec descriptions: http://youtu.be/tkJ4YNOrNpI

I have been appointed to the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program, which means I may be giving some talks about MINIX 3 in the future, in accordance with the ACM procedures. If you would like me to speak at your university, please let me know.




[MINIX 3 logo]       MINIX 3, a highly-reliable operating system based on a tiny (13,000-line) kernel, is now available. It runs on x86 and ARM CPUs so it is good for desktop as well as embedded systems. To download it for free, go to www.minix3.org.
