Faster than a speeding bullet -- On November 11-17, 2006, in Tampa, Florida, USA, a special event will take place -- SC06 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis. Besides being an excellent supercomputer conference (that is taking its inspiration from Albert Einstein this year: "Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid; humans are incredibly slow, inaccurate and brilliant; together they are powerful beyond imagination"), the 28th Top500 supercomputer list will be announced. (The Top500 is like the Miss Universe pageant for frighteningly fast computations. Who will win?) --ks
What will be the latest, fastest computer in world?
