Asya Shklyar

Director of HPC
Pomona College

Lifelong gadget junky with 70 and counting. Love hates Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Needs more time in a day and has a short attention span. Geeks out building research infrastructures and travels too much. Had been in the Linux world since Red Hat 4. And in the parallel universes since MS DOS 6, Windows 3.11 and NT. Lived to see Windows in a container. Wants to see a keyboardless computer that reads her thoughts and does not send her to an app help section. With the appropriate blockchain-based safeguards in place where the network of smart home and Internet-connected devices self-organizes to defend itself.
