Following is a talk I did at the 8th International Workshop on Middleware for Grids, Clouds and e-Science (co located with Super Computing 2010 at New Orleans). The research paper with the same title can be found at http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1890809.
The paper presents Biassa, a scalable tuple space implementation on top of a Distributed Hash Table, and its application as an inter gadget communication medium. This is the outcome of a University of Moratuwa final year project done by Pradeep Fernando, Charith Wickramarachchi, Dulanjanie Sumanasena, and Udayanga Wickramasinghe and supervised by Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana and myself. I am elated that MRT final year projects can go this far!
