Supernet at Supercomputing

The supercomputing guys sure know how to build a super-network. With a 30 gigabit/sec connnection to the outside world everything goes superfast. There are demos run access grid and supercomputing in Japan, Alaska and many other places without any problems. More details at the SCInet site

There is very fast wireless anywhere inside and outside the conference center. It allowed me to followed the Dutch national soccer team demolish the Scots in a 6-0 victory without any interruption.
