Ed Brill has a post noting the 20th anniverary of the announcement of Lotus Notes 1.0. Today is also the 25th anniversay of the founding of Iris Associates, the company set up by Ray Ozzie, Tim Halvorsen and Len Kawell to to create notes.
Greg Pfister has a terrific post on Intel’s announcement of a 48 core experimental “Single Chip Cloud Computer”. Apparently this thing has shared memory, but no cache coherence — building software for this won’t be easy. According to Greg, this will (unlike Larrabee) be manufactured in very small quantities for experimental use.
