Abstract

Distributed Systems designers and builders excel at addressing the goals of scale, reliability, security, and fault-tolerance. These challenges are however only a subset of a much broader set of needs and wants that users have from computer systems. This talk will attempt to show how these broader goals could serve as a source of innovative avenues and exciting new problems for distributed systems research.
