Here's a quick report off my initial reactions after spending a couple of hours getting oriented to the Manycore Testing Lab (MTL) through "VIP access", from my perspective as a CS prof at a small college.
I have to say that I love my job. I get to meet all kinds of fascinating people all on the same road to THINK PARALLEL. One such person is Dr. Dick Brown of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Professor Brown attended last year’s SIGCSE in Chattanooga, TN, and heard Michael Wrinn of Intel’s talk on Ubiquitous Parallelism. He told me recently that this talk really helped him realize that a big change in CS curriculum was necessary.
