My partner Bill Van Etten is giving a presentation at a BBLISA meeting 
on the MIT campus Wednesday evening that is open to the public.

BBLISA ('Back Bay Large Installation System Administration') is a local 
boston-area forum for serious sysadmin and infrastructure types. They 
have a wide variety of speakers for their monthly gatherings covering 
all sorts of interesting topics.

Bill will be talking about biology and bioinformatics -- the types of 
problems and how they are approached computationally (especially via 
clusters and distributed computing). I think he is also going to cover 
the IBT bioinformatics benchmarking suite as well. Given the BBLISA 
audience the talk may be a bit heavy on the intro-to-biology bits but 
will probably get quite technical pretty quickly.
