I am a postdoc at Howard Hughes Research Laboratories in Malibu, CA. My work focuses on social media data mining for early detection of newsworthy events, most recent paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1404.7152.

In 2012 I finished a mathematics PhD at UCLA. My graduate work involved sparsity promoting optimization in quantum mechanical signal processing. You can find me elsewhere on the web: http://ryancompton.net/

comment Easiest way to setup Ubuntu as a VPN server
ok, so, in your example which ip is server ip? 10.89.64.1 ? Then in the Ubuntu network manager the client would list 10.89.64.1 as the Gateway?
