Current Role at StanfordI write about research and other activities of the 250 faculty and 5,300 students of the nine departments that comprise the Stanford School of Engineering.
Masters Student in Computer Science, admitted Autumn 2011
BioI'm Feross Aboukhadijeh <firstname.lastname@example.org>, a programmer, designer, teacher, and mad scientist.
I am currently building WebTorrent <http://webtorrent.io>, a streaming BitTorrent client for the browser, powered by WebRTC. Before that, I built PeerCDN <https://peercdn.com>, a peer-to-peer content delivery network to makes sites faster and cheaper, which was recently acquired by Yahoo.
I'm a graduate of Stanford University and I've worked at Quora, Facebook, and Intel. In the past, I did research in the Stanford human-computer interaction and computer security labs.
I enjoy working on "mad science" — projects that make people say, "Whoa! I didn't know that was possible!". I frequently win hackathons by crafting code that gives kids with spectacles spectacular fits. Recently, I built this virtual reality piloting program that lets you control a quadcopter with an Oculus Rift.
At Stanford, I taught computer science for 6 quarters to students in Stanford's CS 198 program, and was a teaching assistant for CS107: Computer Organization and Systems. I organized lots of sweet computing-related events as president of Stanford's Association for Computing Machinery chapter.
In September 2010, I built YouTube Instant <http://ytinstant.com> (a really fast way to search YouTube) in just 3 hours as a bet with my roommate. The site garnered immediate worldwide media attention — 1 million visitors in 10 days, and hundreds of news stories. Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder of YouTube, was so impressed that he immediately offered me a job at YouTube (which I had to turn down in order to finish my degree).
In my free time, I work on StudyNotes <http://www.apstudynotes.org>, a website to help students study better. I started it in high school and have been maintaining it ever since.
I like long-distance running, basketball, music (playing and listening), anime, and games (counter-strike is my favorite).
I currently live in Mountain View, CA.
