Events Instant Supercomputer
Published: 26-MAR-04

By Eric Caoili

"On April 3, 2004 University of San Francisco will host the first Flash Mob Computing computer, FlashMob I." The guys at USF are hoping you'll bring in your laptops or PCs and join hundreds of others in creating one of the Top 500 Supercomputers of the World. Rival setups like Japan's Earth Simulator or Virginia Tech's network usually cost amounts of cash neither fathomable, nor accessible. FlashMob computing proposes a cheaper solution by bringing together computers for a temporary installation, all working for a few hours to solve problems or equations that would typically take weeks to process alone. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to sign up for this history-making wonder, so don't hesitate to step up. There's even a rumor going around that if a thousand people show up, someone will eat a shoe.

Events There is a very important conference, organized by the UN and the ITU (and heavily sponsored by Canada). This is the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), which is designed to do for IT what the Rio and Kyoto conferences did for the environment.

Every country will be there, as well as more than 2,000 non-governmental organizations. Of these, the only multi-national free software and open source advocacy groups to be approved are the Linux Professional Institute and the Free Software Foundation.

I'll be posting more on WSIS, LPI and Canada's position on open source at WSIS, Until then I invite you to become aware of this major conference. It's actually surprising how many people in IT are completely unaware of it. Australia at Linux Leading Edge
