A very complimentary article on Dan Reed and his efforts to launch and grow the Renaissance Computer Center appeared in today’s Chronicle of Higher Education. I especially like his vision for providing high-performance computing resources beyond the science and engineering communities, to artists and humanists, for example. Combine the unique, and somewhat different, creative abilities of a high-end technologist and an artist, and who knows what you’ll get? By the way, Dan is a contributor to the first issue of CTWatch Quarterly.
