What a very weird two months it's been. I finished a PhD and started at a job at a startup. Unfortunately, the startup didn't work out, which was my fault for not really knowing what I wanted. Edgecast is a classy place and I'm very happy that there were no hard feelings when I left. I instead started at Oracle Labs. I'm back to working on JIT compilers, but in a very different context. I'm working on Project Q, which I can't talk much about yet. I've only been at Oracle Labs for a week, and it's awesome so far. Hopefully that means more VM and more system software posts!
