Hello, I am the author of the news article, after completing the news article I copied it to Wikipedia and wikified it, Kittyhawk as there was no article on this topic. I do not think this causes any issues of copyright infringement. 13:38, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Why did you retitle the article without discussing it first on the article talk page. In fact, the supercomputer is being designed "TO"...not just "CAPABLE" as originally titled. IBM to construct supercomputer to run entire Internet. Please move it back to the old name ASAP. 20:00, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

To interpret what they are proposing as actually hosting the entire internet is nonsensical. Read the IBM white paper. --Jcart1534 - (talk) 22:50, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
In fact, the title should be toned down even more. They are only "exploring" the construction, not "to construct", which interprets it as if they will construct it...a done deal it is not. --Jcart1534 - (talk) 22:56, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Editing a wiki[edit]

First of all, you are not "the author" of this article, the whole community is. Secondly, I am not vandalizing by removing nonsensical and unfounded assertions. Please read the white paper you yourself so generously linked. --Jcart1534 - (talk) 23:04, 24 February 2008 (UTC)


In what way the memory of a distributed computer a memory and not a hard-drive? The access time to memory on remote computers is extremely long, so for any purpose it'd serve the same as a hard drive. 21:03, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
