"It is like comparing apples to oranges. I am a supercomputer scientist while Bill Gates is a software entrepreneur. The scientist creates the knowledge while the entruepreneur takes it, monetizes it, and runs with it."
In 1989, Emeagwali created the knowledge that thousands of electronic brains, called processors could outperform a supercomputer. His discovery was against the prevailing dogma: The president of the leading supercomputer company told The New York Times [11/29/89]:
"A major scientific discovery by a team of 24 co-discoverers supported by a 400 person laboratory or $400 million grants. How then did an African immigrant who worked alone...indifferent to other's skepticism of wild theories achieve a break-through in supercomputing?
"New knowledge builds upon old knowledge and the names of most contributors were lost in antiquity. For instance, I developed nine algorithms which I implemented as 24 million algebraic equations. My work therefore builds upon the knowledge of the ninth century Persian mathematician, Muhammed idn Musa Al-Khwarizmi, who published an influential book Al-Jabr wa'l maqabalah. The words "Al-Khwarizmi" and "Al-Jabr wa'l" were corrupted to algorithm and algebra, respectively. I could not have solved 24 million algebraic equations without building upon the knowledge developed 1680 years before Christ was born by an African mathematician named Ahmes who wrote the oldest mathematic text book with solutions of equation. There were many discoveries and inventions that I built upon to make mine."

Last week we discussed the difference between Hertz and bytes:
- kilo = 1,000
- mega = 1,000,000
- giga = 1,000,000,000
- tera = 1,000,000,000,000
Utilizing the above prefixes combined with Hertz or bytes produces either the speed or storage capacity of a computer.
Standard and assigned disk drives
Recognition of symbols for media

Seniors hard at work, surfing the Internet. Two students are searching in their native Chinese dialect. Our legally blind student searches in large print. A representative from the Social Security Administration is coming to HICAP to demonstrate to students how they can access the SSA website from our lab.
This week we discussed:
Internet Law, keyboard commands, trouble-shooting tips, DOS, amplitude/frequency modulation, USB ports and hubs.
Also, we contacted the NYC Parks Dept. for list of parks offering wireless fidelity.
