Author: Corin Kockenower, Senior Software Engineer As we push high performance computing into exascale (exaFLOPS – a billion billion operations a second), the great depression aphorism “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without” doesn’t seem to be rolling off the tongue of many technologists. Why? I think I understand why […]

Football Gameplay Like Moab and Torque

“While watching Michigan State beat Michigan a few weeks ago in a heated football game, the camera panned to the play calling booth high above the field to view the interchange between them and the coaches on the field.

What’s Better Than Catching Bad Guys?
