North Woods Here I Come!

I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a cabin in the woods. I'll probably be on vacation in this sense, but I won't have internet access.

While sitting by the lake I'll be reading:See you in two and a half weeks!

OH. The paper with Manor is a technical mess - its a very unreadable paper. The basic permise is that whatever you can do with low dim Euclidean space can be done with doubling metrics, but the details are painful, and not too insightful (not to mention the writeup is very mathetmical in styale [i.e., unreadable]). I would recommend skimmed reading of it, and going deeply into the details only if you are trying to improve things. A better starting point is probably the following paper:

keyent = {kl-nnsap-04},
author = {R. Krauthgamer and J. R. Lee},
title = {Navigating nets: simple algorithms for proximity
booktitle = {Proceedings of the fifteenth annual ACM-SIAM
symposium on Discrete algorithms},
year = {2004},
isbn = {0-89871-XXX-X},
pages = {798--807},
location = {New Orleans, Louisiana},
publisher = {Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics},

The clustering motion paper is on the other hand awesome. Its one of my favourite results...
