This 6.s081 website would neither exist nor look so similar to the website for 6.828 (or to the other classes taught by PDOS) had Cam not been a TA for 6.828 and liked the course management system for that class, and more importantly had Frans Kaashoek not agreed to let us use their website as a template. Thanks, Frans!
