Welcome to the SC Community blog!

Also known as "Supercomputing," the SC Conference celebrated its 20th anniversary this past November in Austin. The growth of the show has been remarkable--SC09 will be twice the size it was 10 years ago in Portland. And if you've never been to a Supercomputing show, you may be wondering: where does this success comes from?

For those of us who work, attend, and volunteer every year, the answer is clear; Supercomputing continues to grow from the strength of its ongoing community. For most of the year though, this community is spread is far as the four winds.

That's where this blog comes in.

Why an SC Blog?

The SC show has a wonderful conference site that tells you pretty much everything you need to know. That's great. What we haven't had is a place for us share our stories as a community.

Every year at SC, thousands of us get together for a week and then we go on our separate ways. With Social Media tools like this blog, it is my hope that we can grow the SC community in a whole new way.
