Why dense outliers?

Many people asked us (not really, but it's a good way to start a blog) about the name of the blog. Joachim came up with the word `outlier' since we sometime feel like we're very far from the real theory action and we're like outliers among Australia's overwhelming majority of applied cs researchers. We're often dreaming about the good times, when we were doing our PhDs or postdocs in more theory intense places. Tasos came up with the word `dense' to describe our intellectual capacity.

The aim of this blog is to have a forum for us, for other Australian cs theoreticians (we know you're out there!) and for anyone else that wants to discuss cs theory stuff that may or may not be related to Australia - this really narrows it down.
