The Theory of Computing group at Stanford University and its extended community of theoreticians around is delighted to offer this blog as a forum for exchanging information and ideas. We will dedicate the blog to celebrating our warm and vibrant community here as well as the TOC community at large. We dearly welcome your participation and comments.


  • Please try to comment on topic and respectfully (but you are more than welcome to be provocative and controversial). Anonymous comments will be moderated more strictly.
  • The Dish is a favorite hiking attraction in the Stanford foothills. It’s also a powerful communication device – an inspiration to our Blog.
  • Photo of the dish due to Linda A. Cicero | Stanford News Service (image here is cropped).
  • Group photo due to our own Stanford CS’s Hector Garcia-Molina.
