The Edge Is Where It’s At

Brian Sweeney talks about the value of being on the edge – inspired by Kevin Kelly (Wired). Remarkable talk.

As we move computing power to the edge, this talk resonates even more. Two – that’s two conversations just yesterday that I had where we talked about bringing the power of computing to your pocket.

Think about it – we glibly talk about the ‘supercomputer in our pocket’ – and we use it to ‘like’ Facebook posts, send messages and whatever else it is you do – but hardly supercomputer activity.

Conversation one, no need to explore in detail, but I loved the sentiment of the thinking of the company …

We want to move analytics to the people not their data to the corporation.

… right up my street. As I have always said ….

I don’t think it will be this year, but Jim will be guesting on the podcast. It’s going to be a great conversation.

Conversation two, I can’t say too much about, suffice to say that the work being done is moving the power of a Cray (for those that don’t know – the Cray literally is a Supercomputer) into your house! Get your head around that for a minute.

I am reminded of (what I thought was an old bumper sticker, but turns out is a real quote.
