Earlier this week I was stunned to see China took #1 & #3 spots at the 2H2010 supercomputing event.
Trying not to be dismayed I wondered how US companies would respond?
Did I question our abilities? Certainly not, however, 2.36PF is order and magnitude larger than #2 slot.
A short time ago I saw that some students have built their own supercomputer which placed 3rd in the NCSA
Green 500. So my optimisium for the US future has been restored by our youth. I will continue to watch
that space for other great news.
