Interactive video lesson plan for: The Search for Jim Gray

Activity overview:

May 28, 2008 lecture for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380).

When Jim Gray, a noted computer scientist and Turing award winner, disappeared at sea, a massive effort was mounted to find him. A panel of speakers touches on both the technical approaches employed in the search and on the social side where the community organized a massive effort quickly and efficiently.

Panel Members:
Captain David J. Swatland (Deputy Sector Commander for the Coast Guard Sector San Francisco)
Donna Carnes (Jim Gray's Wife)
Mike Olson (Long time friend of Jim Gray; founder of Sleepcat Software, former Oracle VP)
