In case you have to take your mind off tomorrow's suspense-filled and technologically challenging landing of Curiosity on Mars (see 7 minutes of Terror, a blockbuster taking place on Mars this Summer ) Michael Mahoney, Alex Shkolnik, Gunnar Carlsson, Petros Drineas, the organizers of Workshop on Algorithms for Modern Massive Data Sets (MMDS 2012), just made available the slides of the meeting. Other relevant meeting slides include that of the Coding, Complexity, and Sparsity Workshop and that of the GraphLab workshop. Don't grind your teeth too much tomorrow and Go Curiosity !

Guys, looks like not all the talks have slides - is that an error or are they really not posted yet? E.g. "Experimenting at Scale" (day 3).
