> Finally a well balanced, hype free article by respected industry expert
> Jeff Layton:
Excuse me James for hijacking your post. I'll try to be brief.
I want to chime in on the copy and paste to the list issue
using this story as an example.
Jeff and I write for HPC Admin (and occasionally some other sites).
We get paid, not a lot, but enough so we have some pocket change to
buy hardware and such without our respective spouses complaining.
HPC Admin, pays us from ad revenue, so if you want to keep
seeing good stories from Jeff (and hopefully me), then give HPC Admin
the clicks, it is that simple. It you cut and paste Jeff's article,
it probably violates HPC Admin's copyright and does not give them
clicks (assumptions to contrary are just assumptions and in an
Internet world all views/clicks matter)
ClusterMonkey is a little different in that virtually all content
is under a Creative Commons non-commercial attribution license,
so it can be freely copied with proper attribution (BTW, in the past
we have found compete CM articles stripped of attribution on other
sites and blogs, by those that do not understand the meaning of
ClusterMonkey is also designed as a community site. There is no
registration required, there are small banner ads for the
occasional sponsor. I have tried to keep article pages as
"content dense" as possible (I.e. we don't have one paragraphs
pages designed to increase banner display counts)
Content on ClusterMonkey has a good shelf life as we see continued
hits on tutorial and background information. Our goal is
good technical "how-to" content, background, benchmarks, and
the occasional interesting news piece. The site is no one's
day job. Jeff Layton and I have provided much of the current content
because we like to write and like to help the community.
If you want to help the community, you can write an article
for ClusterMonkey (contact me off list), visit the site once
and a while, or refer people to it when they are interested
in learning about cluster HPC. Posting links to CM articles that
you find useful is also very helpful.
Finally, I did just post and article on some experiments with small scale
switchless 10GigE, http://goo.gl/5l2NJ if you are interested in that
kind of thing.
Thanks for reading.
