This report was drafted by Tom Ray, and revised in light of the comments offered by Jeremy Bruestle, Roger Gouin, Joseph Hart, Matt Jones, Kurt Thearling, Jan Hauser, Charles Ofria, and Titus Brown.

All of the participants were funded by the Tierra Workshop from Santa Fe Institute funds, except:

Charles Ofria, whom was visiting SFI to confer with Stuart Kaufmann. Jan Hauser and Tsutomu Shimomura who were funded by Sun Microsystems. Julia Menapace who came with Tsutomu. Eric Schmidt of Sun has also agreed to support technical expertise for Tierra in the area of network programming and screen saver technology. Jan Hauser identified the person who has agreed to provide this assistance just before the workshop, and therefore he was not able to attend due to the short notice. His name is Bob Gilligan ( Similarly, Nathan Myhrvold of Microsoft has agreed to provide similar technical support. Again the Microsoft person was identified too late to be able to attend the workshop. This person has subsequently left Microsoft, so Nathan is looking for a new person.

The main topics discussed were: security, the status of ports of Tierra to the different platforms, the options for implementing the network version on the various platforms, how to generalize the Tierra interface across platforms, how to generalize the socket calls across platforms, the Avida system.
