Congratulations to Nobel Prize Winners, and a Nod to Mass Collaboration

The Nobel Prize for physics was announced today, which went to François Englert and Peter Higgs for the Higgs boson discovery of the subatomic particle that helps define the fabric of the universe, known to many as “the God particle.” This was a highly-anticipated announcement by the science and technology community and is one to be celebrated. Professor Higgs first put forward the idea of the existence of the particle in 1964 while at the University of Edinburgh, but it wasn’t until last year that its discovery was confirmed through the work of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. What happened in those nearly 50 years between theory and confirmation? Many things, including the tireless work of passionate, dedicated scientists. I’d also propose that advances in new technologies and an increasing movement towards collaboration helped bridge idea to...

Reality Check: Supercomputers Still Rule… and Linux Still Rules Them

Given the rise of clustered computers, is supercomputing even worth it anymore? After all, supercomputers are not easy to build and tend to need a lot of resources (like power) to operate. Couldn't cloud computing or even a cluster of Hadoop systems do the same thing for a lot less hassle?
