|Hi everyone, |
Here is a link to an eWeek article that just came out last week:
The title is: Tera-scale Computing: Intel's Attack of the Cores
I encourage everyone to read the article, but to get to the point:
Here is one excerpt:
Have we ever attempted to attract the attention of Intel? They *must* be aware of CSP! If Intel has spurned WoTUG's advances in the past, perhaps it's time to court them, again? We should invite an Intel exec/engineer to give a keynote at CPA, just before or just after another keynote extolling the benefits and virtues of process-oriented software design on multicore architectures. :-)
It appears Intel, for its part, is reaching looking for partners to reach out to. Here's another excerpt:
It is clear Intel is acutely aware of the problem, and need to educate the programming masses. Okay, last excerpt:
We should focus our efforts to make contact with Intel's Software Products Group, and invite Intel to work with Academia as well as software companies. This is a crucial time, if it's not already too late, to get the endorsement of one of the world's most influential semiconductor manufacturers. Isn't this a golden opportunity for FDR, for example?
I'm at a loss for where to begin, but I'd like to invite some open discussion regarding what I believe is a time-limited opportunity. Please share your thoughts.
