Bit twiddler alert

One more post before we head off to the train to London. If you are interested in next-generation computer science concepts, you might check out the video that Charles Torre did with the Concurrency and Coordination Runtime team (I played camera boy). This team is smart. I think my IQ went up a point just by being in the same room.

They are trying to make programming for multi-core processors a lot easier.

  1. When he said he wrote an appliaction using this runtime that was load balanced between 4 processors with 99% load… I think i grinned.

    Tell those guys to keep up the work! I mean intel and amd are battling to hit quad core by 1Q 07. It will only get more and more complex from now on.

    In 10 years Scoble, we’re going to be sitting with our 128 core machines with terabytes of ram, and laugh about all this.
