6.033--Excellent reading reports

Each week we select one reading report from all reports submitted. The criteria are that it should be well-written and technically insightful. The selected report gives a good example of one possible approach to the assignment.

The selection procedure is as follows. Each TA selects one report he or she especially likes, and out of these Frans Kaashoek picks the one that will be published on the web.
