Radio Free HPC, Episode 12: Tracking Backlash & Big Data PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 28 September 2012 00:00

In this episode, our hosts agree that "software is not magic" and consumers don't want to be tracked. Will there be a backlash? Will this be the new marketing point for competing browsers? Dan admits to being creeped out by email offers that result from Internet searches... Rich reveals that he is besieged by ads for smokers (the kind for cooking critters)... and the Profound Thought of the Day comes from Henry.

Radio Free HPC, Episode 11: Rich Goes to OSCON PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 28 September 2012 00:00

At OSCON, or the Open Source Convention, a presentation on the "Clothesline Paradox" aptly illustrated the way developers create value. Many large companies such as Comcast make a living on open-source software. Dan digresses into a string of complaints about his Comcast bill, but Henry and Rich reel in the discussion: was the Internet created out of generosity, or enlightened self-interest? And we hear again from one of our sponsors: Glade 'Data Center Edition' air fresheners.

Radio Free HPC, Episode 10: Exascale Challenge Power PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 21 September 2012 00:00

Power is a major challenge standing in the way of the Exascale wave. Our hosts discuss: where are these systems going to be hosted? And how about building some infrastructure, anyway? Tune in to hear scary "power" music and figure out how this relates to Mad Max, lasers, unicorns, and Planet of the Apes.

Radio Free HPC, Episode 8: Is Tape Dead, or Just Quiet? PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

Is that parrot completely dead, or is it just resting?
Is tape now a legacy technology, or is it alive and well?

Archive is a critical aspect of both Big Data and supercomputing, and tape is the most efficient, cost-effective, and reliable means of archiving. Our hosts discuss whether just putting everything in the cloud is the solution; their consensus is a definite "No." They also debunk tape's bad reputation.

In more 'legacy' talk, Dan posits that Henry whittled the first punch cards by hand, and Rich claims that Henry invented the chad. Henry retaliates by claiming to have more hair... truly a must-see podcast.
