the guy doesn't teach all he cares about is his research, doesn't care about his students. The last thing he cares about is wheather his students understand the course material.

This guy is a complete moron, sure he's smart, but that's about it - he can't talk, communicate or give fair exams. Should be fired immediately. Doesn't care about students, UW is going downhill each year thanks to people like this.

What can I say? Huge nerd, totally socially awkward, can't look anyone in the eye. He belongs where he is teaching, he would be completely useless in any real job situation.

Comment:
This guy is scary. He seems like a walking computer that and every statement and move of his is generated by an algorithm. He does't look at the students when he lectures which makes it hard to stay focused. However, he does know a lot! He tends to lose focus and talk about things outside of the course.

David Taylor is the biggest nerd of the CS faculty. I just wish I was the president of this prestigious university so that I can outsource this guy to India in order to sharpen his communication skill.

made CS 350 more like CS 343 by including all those advanced concurrent concepts on the mditerm and the final despite only a brief introduction on the course note; he is always out there to make students' lives miserable, there is no doubt about it.
