I am heading the Virus Safe Computing Initiative at
Laboratories in Palo Alto,
California, where we are developing a virus
safe computing environment for Microsoft Windows. You can learn
more about what we do from
the video of a talk I gave at Google.
I have a BS in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Ph.D.
in Astronomy from the University of Maryland. I was an assistant professor of physics at Dartmouth College before
spending 15 years at IBM, where I did research in a variety of areas
involving large scale scientific computing. I joined HP Labs in 1992 where I have worked on tools
for debugging parallel programs, the EPIC architecture embodied in the
HP/Intel Itanium chip, and e-speak, a distributed system for conducting
business on the Internet.
E-speak: Documentation and distributions
Site Password: A tool for managing all your passwords
PubShare: Crowdsourcing Permissions for Group Communications
is a virus safe computing environment for Windows XP.
With Polaris, a virus that happens to run on your machine won't be
able to do much harm. For an example, see
SCoopFS (the "F" is silent): Simple Cooperative File Sharing.
