Supersnarker

Bet you didn’t realize Snarkmarket was running on one of these, did you?

Actually, it’s funny, there’s a line in that article — about IBM’s Blue Gene/L supercomputer — that goes “it will use no more power than the average home,” and I expected the next word to be “computer” or “refrigerator” or something. But no. It will use no more power than the average home, period.

But that’s the kind of power we need. Snarkmarket’s brand of ten-dimensional political and social analysis makes protein folding look like frickin’ Pong.
