[PLUG] FW: Jon "Maddog" Hall talks on Beowulf April 8

Baltimore Washington Beowulf Users Meeting April Meeting:

Our next meeting: April 8, 2003 at 3:00pm. 

New Location: Northrop Grumman Offices at 7575 Colshire Drive; McLean, VA

Speaker: Jon maddog Hall 

Topic: "Beowulf: Standalone or part of a continuum?" 

Beowulf systems would be interesting just as they are....as an alternative
to expensive supercomputers. However, when you start to think of Beowulf
systems as part of a continuum of computing, then Beowulf systems become
very, very interesting indeed. This talk will address that concept. 
Jon "maddog" Hall has been in the computer field for over thirty years.
While he has spent twenty years with Unix and ten years with Linux, he has
also worked on wide variety of other operating systems and architectures. He
has been a programmer, systems administrator, quality control engineer,
product manager, technical marketing manager, and is currently Executive
Director of Linux International. He has been a customer and a vendor, worked
for small and large companies, and has taught at the college level. He has
his undergraduate degree in Commerce and Engineering from Drexel University
and his MSCS from RPI in Troy, NY. maddog (first called that by his loving
students) likes talking to students, usually over a mug of beer and a pizza,
but will substitute other food for the pizza as the culture dictates. For
