Interactive Networks at SC08 (part two)

November last year we presented the Interactive Networks concept at Supercomputing 2008. Recently I got hold of more photo and video content.

Photos and videos

In my previous post on Interactive Networks, I gave a brief explanation of the concept. My colleague Rudolf Strijkers (Project lead) created a page with pictures and videos from the demo we presented. This page also includes a video of Rudolf explaining the Interactive Network concept to Gordon Cook. Only the video with Gordon Cook is in English, but I guess that most of the videos are self explanatory. The videos and photos be found here: Supercomputing 2008 media

COOK Report

After Gordon Cook was given a brief introduction to the Interactive Networks concept, he invited Rudolf Strijkers and Cees de laat for a more in-depth interview. The article (abstract) can be found here: ICT and E-Science as an Innovation Platform in The Netherlands “A National Research and Innovation NetworkWhat Can the US Learn from Dutch Experience?”

The guys from Renaissance Computing Institute were kind enough to show us their table. We could even take a peek under the black curtain that contained all the *magic*.
