Lecture for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE380).
When Jim Gray, a noted computer scientist and Turing award winner, disappeared at sea, a massive effort was mounted to find him. A panel of speakers touches on both the technical approaches employed in the search and on the social side where the community organized a massive effort quickly and efficiently.
