Although I did attend the The Harvard of the North!
I gave a talk at Harvard early in April on the history of search at Sun. If you're interested you can watch the video. I'm the big dude up at the front there. Also, you get a few thrilling seconds of Jim Waldo close to the start.
I go into a bit of background on the early work that formed the foundation for our engine, and some of the stuff that's going into Minion and Aura.
