Class 22: Subsidies, Ombuds, Melange

Posted: Mon 06 April 2015


If your group didn't already send me a project progress update, please remember to do so by midnight tonight. Your update should either point to your first deliverable (as specified in your proposal), or explain what progress you've made and issues that have come up. It does not need to be a long or formal report, but enough to see that you're making progress and raise any issues before it is too late to deal with them.

Thursday evening at 6pm in Comm School (RRH) room 223 there will be a bitcoin panel hosted by Carol Van Cleef, and including Alex Kuck, Nick Skelsey, Josh Cincinnati, David Evans, and Denis Nekipelov as panelists. Please fill in this form to make sure they order enough pizza:
