Thomas’ images from CERN tour

My video from the CERN “birthplace of the Web” tour should be up today, but here’s a little photo teaser of what you’ll see in the video from Thomas Mygdal (the guy who runs the excellent Reboot conference in Copenhagen, Denmark every year).

Little tidbit: a large portion of the data center at CERN is empty. Why? Because its new 27 KM-long machine turns on later this year (it kicks out the data equivilent of 10,000 Encyclopedia Brittanicas EVERY SECOND). So, why don’t they have the computers yet? Because if the rule is you buy your computers at the last possible day to save money and/or get more powerful computers.

  1. The link to the teaser doesn’t work.

    That’s an interesting approach to technology. It makes sense though.
