Article: Tap Into the 12-Million-Teraflop Handheld Megacomputer

Tap Into the 12-Million-Teraflop Handheld MegacomputerThis is a short but sweet little article from July’s Wired that compares the human brain to the massive network of internet-enabled devices (from PCs to mobile phones) that is called here the “One Machine”.

I’ve included it as I’m just finishing up the book “The Big Switch” by Nicholas Carr which examines the importance of computing in the cloud (more on that soon…). Oh, and it has some nice Flash to give you the information – it works better on-screen than the printed page.
