Sun’s HPC Watercooler tipped me off to an article on algorithms over at Economist.com. The article begins thusly

Ah me, that IS scary.
Anyway, the article does offer a review of some of the things that businesses are doing with those supercomputers they’re buying, without actually using the “supercomputing” or “HPC” in the text.
