In this video, Dan Olds from Gabriel Consulting discusses the origins of the Student Cluster Competition with Brent Gorda, who helped found the contest back at SC07. Gorda talks about the goals of the competition and the hurdles they had to go through in the early days.

With the ISC’13 Student Cluster Challenge coming up next week in Leipzig, Dan Olds has also posted a complete rundown on the teams, so check it out.
