  1. Luca,

    Did you attend Richard Stanley’s plenary talk yesterday? If so, what was it like?

    I listen to several talks from the guys in the algebraic combinatorics group here in ReykjavĂ­k, and their work seems to have strong ties with TCS. We certainly like to have them as members in our small and modest TCS research centre :-)

  2. Cool Blog! If you get a chance I would like to invite you to visit the following Back Pain Blog, it is cool to!
