Guys, I am enjoyed *all* the presentations and blogs thusfar, and the discussions raised in class. If you haven't spoken out in class yet, please try to do so. I wanted to call your attention to two exemplary presentation/blogs. Presentation: Prabhu's talk was excellent. He motivated the problem carefully, described the interesting technical innovations in the paper, and gave critical comments. He also gave a snappy talk that fell well within the 30 minutes. There is no substitute for knowing the paper inside-and-out. Learn from it. Blog: Ankit's blog was a beautiful piece of work. It contained a nice discussion of the paper, draw comparisons to things we had already read, and give a slew of pro and con statements. Wow!
