"Not being one to gloat (cough), I would like to take this opportunity to say, “I told you so.” In case you are wondering what it was exactly I said, I will recap.
"I periodically bemoan the state of parallel programming. My experience with parallel programming stretches back to the late 1980’s. At this time, I was working on various parallel programing ideas including Fortran conversion and Logic Programming. The lessons I learned were two fold. First, parallel computing is hard and second we need to re-think how we do things. This opinion is shared by virtually everyone who has worked in HPC over the years. The prognosis is not that great either. Take a look at Greg Pfister’s blog where he writes about comments like Parallelism Needs a Killer Application. By the way, Greg’s other blog posts are worth reading."
