HFT World 2011 and intro

Finally my first post to the Enhyper blog, on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I've just returned from speaking at HFT World 2011 in Amsterdam. Turnout wasn't as large as I expected, however, there was some good discussion around what the future is likely to hold.

I shared some of my views on embracing the end-to-end principle with Mike O'Hara from the High Frequency Trading Review, and I'll return to this post to set some of those views down in blog space a bit later. My background's in IP/telecoms systems design, so my views of HFT and its technology tend to be coloured by that.
