I do not agree. Danny Hillis with his 'connection machines', offered computer
hardware several orders of magnitude faster than anything else existing at
that time. Great: no one knew how to code for the damned things. The
breakthrough will be at our level. A very fast, large (whatever) machine, is
just that. Someone still needs to come up with code to run on it.
