Supercomputing from scratch + pay: Awesome job

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

The PNNL just recently hired Adolfy Hoisie, the winner of the Gordon Bell Award back in 1996. He’ll be doing pretty interesting stuff: Desingning supercomputing from scratch, both in hardware and software. This is an amazingly interesting task since you can drop all burdens, all hardware- and software-restrictions you ever had. No more tailoring your software to fit the buffers into your cachelines. I mean, that’s just: Wow. Not that I’m envious or someting, I really like my job, but getting a grant for a task like this is like winning the lottery.
Adolfy, come on, show us how it’s to be done! Awesome.
