Linux Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at Computer World asks himself when he first started using Linux after attending the Linux Foundation Summit where several others were asked the same question. The Linux Foundation has posted a video of some of the answers; boy, do I feel young.

Todd,

A colleague forwarded your comments here. I am Celia Einhorn, a program manager for the Supercomputing Challenge.

Yes, we will be 20 years old next year and going strong.

Are you really busy this week? Do you have time to judge a Best Web presentation competition? If so, could you please write to consult@challenge.nm.org and let us know?

May we use this quote on our webpage <http://challenge.nm.org>


In 1994 (my junior year of high school), I took a FORTRAN class in which the students entered into mentorships with scientists at Sandia National Labs. This was part of a program in New Mexico called the Supercomputing Challenge--a truly excellent way for kids to learn that you can do good and amazing things with powerful computers.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Warmly,
Celia
