From Snow to Sand

Just boarded a plane headed to Oahu.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path
and leave a trail. -Emerson

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things
you didn't do than by the ones that you did. So throw off the
bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your
sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

--- Mark Twain

322 Terrabits per Second!!

"Today Cisco Systems introduced its next-generation Internet core router, the CRS-3, with about three times the capacity of its current platform. 'The Internet will scale faster than any of us anticipate,' Cisco's John Chambers said while announcing the product. At full scale, the CRS-3 has a capacity of 322Tbit/sec., roughly three times that of the CRS-1, introduced in 2004. It also has more than 12 times the capacity of its nearest competitor, Chambers said. The CRS-3 will help the Internet evolve from a messaging to an entertainment and media platform, with video emerging as the 'killer app,' Chambers said. Using a CRS-3, every person in China, which has a population just over 1.3 billion, could participate in a video phone call at the same time. (Or you could pump nearly one Library of Congress per second through the device, or give everyone in San Fransisco a 1Gbps internet connection.) AT&T said it has been using the CRS-3 to test 100Gbit/sec. data links in tests on a commercial fiber route in Florida and Louisiana."
