Lec 6 - Rethinking Time in Distributed Systems

"Lec 6 - Rethinking Time in Distributed Systems" (November 11, 2009) Paul Borrill of REPLICUS Software Corporation discusses results from physics and other disciplines that investigate if and where hazards to the integrity of our information may exist due to current conceptions of time in computer science. Borrill focuses upon distributed systems, where scale, transmission rates and spatial distribution would most readily manifest anomalous behavior arising from such flaws.
