A few weeks ago, insideHPC conducted a reader survey. We’ll be sharing the results soon, but today we are pleased to announce that Aaron Hicks from New Zealand was the lucky participant who won our drawing for an iPod touch. Aaron is a cluster administrator for Landcare Research NZ ltd, and is involved in the BeSTGRID and New Zealand eScience Infrastructure (NeSI) projects.
Things have gotten a bit exciting around here, even though I’m all the way up in Palmerston North,” said Aaron Hicks from New Zealand’s Landcare Research. “We’ll be doing a bit of work co-ordinating the transfer of Christchurch earthquake related data around the country. Our high speed KAREN network will be used by the New Zealand Civil Defence and NZ Defence Force to ship data around.”
We wish Aaron and his countrymen the best in these difficult times.
