A few Fridays ago, I gave a talk on the work I did building HomeOS at NSDI in San Jose. If you’re interested, you can find the paper and slides on on my website’s list of publications as well as a video of the talk on the conference website.
Somewhat predictably, because the work was done with Microsoft Research the tech media has been picking up the presentation and reporting on it speculating on what Microsoft might be up to in the long-term. The fact that as part of the project we actually got the system running in 12 real homes only added to the temptation. It’s been covered on CNET, Slashdot, GigaOm, TIME, The Verge and engadget among others.
Fun times, working on the project was a blast and it’s even more fun to see that other people actually care.
