FOCS Day 1: some notes

Three newsworthy items from the FOCS business meeting: (for more details follow the focs2010 tag on twitter)
  1. Petros Drineas is now an AF program director at the NSF. Congrats, Petros !
  2. STOC 2011 might experiment with a poster session with a different call for submissions. That's a great idea - I hope they decide to go ahead with it
  3. Not one person felt that FOCS should continue to have printed proceedings. As recently as a few years ago, at least a third of the audience at theory conferences would have asked for printed proceedings. Times they are a'changin' !!!
