Paul Watson was visiting

It was really great to see and spend time with Paul Watson. He was around to give a presentation at the Google Scalability conference. We took the opportunity to also invite him and talk in Microsoft. As always, Paul‘s work at the Newcastle University is state-of-the-art. Great stuff.

Paul and co have even launched InkSpotScience, a company to provide science services on demand. I am really interested in what they are going to deliver.

I’ve known Paul since 1996. He’s been a fantastic mentor, teacher, supervisor, boss, friend! It’s great to spend time with him and listen to his ideas and work.
