Paul Mineiro sharing his notes and thoughts after attending an HPC event:
My plan was to observe the HPC community, try to get a feel how their
worldview differs from my internet-centric “Big Data” mindset, and broaden
my horizons. Intriguingly, the HPC guys are actually busy doing the
opposite. They’re aware of what we’re up to, but they talk about Hadoop like
it’s some giant livin’ in the hillside, comin down to visit the townspeople.
Listening to them mapping what we’re up to into their conceptual landscape
was very enlightening, and helped me understand them better.
No more ivory towers.
