Reflections on HPCC’08

In this story, Mike Bernhardt from Tabor Marketing reflects on the recent HPCC conference , thus giving us a preview of the DE Shaw keynote coming up at ISC’08:
“Dr. David Shaw, Chief Scientist of D.E. Shaw Research. His presentation was on “Anton,” a great case study that demonstrates the need for specialized capability machines. David’s research group is currently building a highly specialized, massively parallel machine, targeted for completion in late 2008, with the goal of executing millisecond-scale, classical molecular dynamic simulations of one or more proteins at an atomic level of detail.”

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems.

So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
