I'm not complaining. We have MPI, nanokernels, architectures
like Blue Gene (<>
demonstrates an application, and cites architecture papers),
coarse-grain FPGA+embedded memory+signalling fabric as
well as fine-grained cellular architectures. MRAM is only
a couple of years remote from the marketplace, spintronics
is soon to follow, molecular memory and cellular logic is
10-20 years away.

My only complaint is that I can't buy any of it yet.
By the time I can I will no longer be able to do much
with it.
