Are we contenders?

Some tend to think of China as the young upstart, gaining greater footing on the world economic scene, but in the end controlling only things like the world’s underwear production. If you have that belief, you have underestimated China. This morning it was reported in the Wall Street Journal that the new supercomputer in China can do 40% more calculations than the American supercomputer which held the record. If information is our new lifeblood, we better get busy making sure we can compete on the few playing fields left open to us.

Are you kidding me.
