Podcast: Mr. Multi-Core on Pervasive Parallelism

In this episode of Semi-Coherent Computing, Ashlee Vance at the Register sat down with Kunle Olukotun to talk about his life, his work and his vision for computing’s future:
“As head of Stanford’s new Pervasive Parallelism Lab, Olukotun is looking to create software tools that will make it easier for programmers to embrace multi-core chips. He and other researchers will focus on building development environments for 3-D worlds, robots and massive server-side applications. With any luck, the Stanford work – funded by the likes of IBM, Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Sun and HP – will help coders tackle chips with 100 cores or more.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
