about me

My academic background is as a mathematical economist, focusing on game theory and mechanism design. I have a Masters in Economics from Indiana University and dual Masters in Management and Engineering from MIT.

\n

For the last 20 years I have pretty much lived at the intersection of TCP/IP networking and mathematical modeling. I spent my first 10 years out of school working for various networking companies. For the last 10 years I have split my time between the MathWorks where I was the manager for MATLAB's statistics system and Akamai Technologies. I currently work with the Adversarial Resilience team at Akamai, focusing on event detection, capacity planning, and Transport Layer Security.

I don't have many real achievements in the world of bridge, though I am fairly well know on BBO (and earlier on OKB). Bridgewise, I am probably most proud of my MOSCITO notes (which I really need to finish one of these days)

Country
United States of America

ACBL Sectionals after November 2018 - convention charts used

True, but it is a separate district from SoCal which is what would have been nice...
Poll on Psychs - 3 (the last one)
I've seen all sorts of them, typically in top levels of play, typically scoring very well I recommend that you take a look at third seat 1 openings by Precision pairs.

Bugger. I think that I was looking at a cached copy of the page. (I thought that the upcoming Fall Nationals was in San Diego). It MIGHT be possible to do something similar in Honolulu. Not many of the folks living there were born there.
Democracy ACBL-style: ATL General Membership Meeting.
Few quick thoughts / comments about this effort; 1. As Ray notes, something similar was tried a couple years back with little or no success and it felt as if that effort started earlier and was better organized. 2. From my perspective, the key issue that needs to be address is ...

I am also happy to hand over my proxy

Sure... I'll be happy to monitor the thread and keep a running count.

I'd like to see a motion that would ban the ACBL from making any changes to Master Point allocation formulas for the next five years. (I have to believe that there is something more valuable that the officers could be doing)
Democracy ACBL-style: ATL General Membership Meeting.
I'd like to see a motion that would reduce the size of the Bod of Directors to 9 members. Bod representatives would be drawn from the following constituencies One each representing 1. The North East 2. The South 3. The Mid West 4. The North West 5. The South ...
