CS 285: Final Project Proposals

Proposal: Distributed Hitting Time

(a) Motivation

One part of the course discussed trust, reputation, and sybil-proofness. My independent thesis research has been on this topic, and much of my research has


  • Do you want to go the 100m acquisition route, or do you want to go big? Dan: We want to be the second wave of ETF innovation
  • In that case, always stay independent, and do not tie your brand to any other brand. Do not issue ETFs in close collaboration with a Blackrock or Prudential -- once you do that you're tied into their network and it will be very hard to get acquired. Doing such a deal would bring in faster revenue, but would also place you at the mercy of their restrictions and constraints. Doing it yourself will be more work, but will allow you to keep much much more upside.
  • Similar with Markit -- don't mix in your brand with them too much. Try to get a revshare from them, but don't give them a revshare for us. Try to keep our platform separate.
  • On focus: Roger literally says this: "Lack of focus will kill this company. People will have opinions about this, but I am right." He says to stay laser focused on the technology and the current product, and don't worry ab

Narrative conception of the self is Aristotelian -- it is teleological a) the narrative conception presupposes a certain conception of the good life as a whole b) MacIntyre's conception of the good life involves following the narrative of life. In the process of determing how I ought to act, it would be wrong to step back from the particulars of my situation -- I need to look at my current situation nal Exam 20 MC questions -- broadly thematic 2 essays
