Joined the Einstein@Home distributed computing project.

Einstein@Home is a program that uses your computer’s idle time to search for spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave detectors. It also searches for radio pulsars in binary systems, using data from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

Seeking new revenue streams and operational efficiencies, many businesses are re-tooling their infrastructure, development and operations to deploy applications into private clouds. However, the challenges of legacy architecture, up-front investment requirements, and team skills have been obstacles to wider acceptance of cloud initiatives. WSO2 Vice President of Technology Evangelism Chris Haddad will explore how early private cloud adopters are realizing a multitude of benefits at Cloud Computing West 2012. The conference runs November 8-9, 2012 at the DoubleTree Suites in Santa Monica, CA.

In his presentation, Investing in Cloud Initiatives, Chris will examine how early private cloud adopters are successfully adapting their IT business models, vendor-provided infrastructure, and practices to gain cloud benefits. Additionally, Chris will outline:

Question by a.f: The ps3 FOLDING AT HOME it uses your electricity but what does Stanford do to help there research?
i heard that the ps3 download packets or something like that can anyone explain
how does leaving the ps3 help cure the disease.
i want to help
but i don’t understand how this works

Best answer:

Answer by Dean B
f@H is a “Distributed computing” progrma that is used to work out the complexeites of protien folding.
if you downlaod the applicaiton ot the ps3 (theres a link under the web browser) then it will get “work units” form the stannford server and the ps3 will use the parele proceeing power of the Cell to worrk out protien foldeing.
If you visit there site ti will tell you all you nend to knwo including there breakthrough in research, and that the ps3 is stupidly good at this.
its all for the good of humankind, if you want that warm fuzzy feeling.

MIT Museum: “Welcome to Athena”

Image by Chris Devers
Interesting that a workstation attached to Project Athena would be on display, but then, why not? It was impressive, and still is. I’ve still never worked somewhere with a setup this nice, though Apple came close in some ways:

[quoting wikipedia]

The initial goals of Project Athena were[1]:

* To develop computer-based learning tools that are usable in multiple educational environments
* To establish a base of knowledge for future decisions about educational computing
* To create a computational environment supporting multiple hardware types
* To encourage the sharing of ideas, code, data, and experience across MIT

To implement these overall goals, the Technical Committee decided to build a distributed computing system. Students would have access to (for the time) high performance graphical workstations, capable of 1 million instructions per second and having 1 megabyte of RAM and a 1 megapixel display[1][2]. Upon logging into a workstation, they would have immediate access to a universal set of files and programs via central services. The user interface would be consistent despite the use of different hardware vendors for different workstations. A small crew would need to be able to maintain hundreds of workstations, leading to the design of "stateless" or "thin client" workstations.

The project spawned many technologies that are widely used today, such as the X Window System and Kerberos. Among the other technologies developed for Project Athena were the Xaw widget set, Zephyr Notification Service (which was the first instant messaging service), and the Hesiod name and directory service.

The X Window System originated as a joint project of Project Athena and MIT’s Laboratory for Computer Science, and was used by Athena.

When Project Athena ended in June 1991, the computing environment was renamed to the Athena system, and administration was transferred to the MIT Information Systems organization (MIT’s IT department). Athena is still used by many in the MIT community through the computer clusters scattered around the campus. It is also now available for installation on personal computers, including laptops.

This is one big sim devoted to AIDS/HIV. It includes a number of settings as well as informational resources, and meditation/meeting places. IBM has an area devoted to their distributed computing for AIDS research project. There is also a Memorial area with stories and pictures. A wonderful Memorial Falls area is pictured.
