unexpected linkage

After refreshing myself on a nice little evolutionary algorithm called ECGA I googled for the author, Georges Harik. Turns out he’s now director of Googlettes, the experimental lab at Google.

As a by-product, I stumbled across the blog for IlliGAL and a somewhat cheezy web radio interview.

Being able to go from reading a technical paper on probablistic models of genetic algorithms to hearing the author explain the thinking about Gmail is one example of why I’m still an excitable web-monkey.
