Today the ISC Group, promoter of the TOP500 list, is pleased to announce the appointment of high performance computing industry journalist Michael Feldman to the position of managing editor of TOP500 News. In his new role, Feldman will expand the TOP500 project’s information portal into a comprehensive news site reporting on the HPC industry.
We are thrilled to bring Michael on board as he is a respected voice in the industry. With the addition of a comprehensive news site managed by him, the TOP500 project will offer a valuable new resource for HPC vendors and users,” said ISC Group managing director and TOP500 co-author, Martin Meuer.
Going forward, the TOP500 news site will encompass vendor product news, technology developments and trends, HPC applications, and community events.
Feldman is a 38-year veteran of the IT industry, first as a software developer for operating systems and compiler tools, and later as a journalist and market analyst in the HPC arena. He was the managing editor of HPCwire from 2006-2013, followed by three years at the HPC market research firm, Intersect360 Research, as an analyst.
While at Intersect360, Feldman co-hosted the popular industry podcast, This Week in HPC, with its CEO, Addison Snell. The podcast is distributed by TOP500, and will continue to be delivered each week by the same duo.
On his appointment, Feldman commented: “The TOP500 project has been a very significant element of the HPC community for over thirty years. “I am eager to help the project establish its influence as an online news publication and offer my perspectives on the ever-evolving HPC industry.”
The next TOP500 list will be released on June 20 at ISC 2016.
