ACM Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) 2010: Day 1


The notes that follow are a mixture of what each speaker said, or bullets listed on slides (verbatim, with minor US->UK deltas because I was touch-typing), or thoughts of my own. If you were at IMC and you spot errors (likely), do feel free to point them out, and I’ll fix them.

The amount of text written for each is proportional to certain variables: How tired I was during the talk, how interested I was in the talk, how much I knew about the subject material, and how good the speaker was. Note also that these are pretty raw. Questions are omitted if the question was not clear; many responses from the speaker have been shortened for brevity.
