Through that time he has made some observations and developed a prediction of his own: A faster version of Moore’s Law called Moore Squared, the topic of his coming keynote at ISC’13. We ask him a few questions.

In other items, researchers explore the reliability of HPC cloud, take another pass at GPU virtualization, and evaluate I/O performance in Amazon’s EC2 cloud.
