We’re announcing the name of Intel’s smallest IA processor ever… right here on this very blog when that clock expires.
This got me thinking of NASA and that baritoned announcer who says “T-minus 1 minute and counting…”. Or maybe some of those older Bond films where they’re counting down from some secret island or hidden volcano.
But check this out… NASA has this great site on the famous countdown and each of the milestones that a “T” represents. Now… we’re not getting this fancy, but I’m envious of their ability to plan the launch of a complex space shuttle down to the second.
Intel innovation has helped to enable NASA’s “highly mobile” space program up in space and down here on Earth.
So here’s my prediction:
The first person to blog from outer-space will do so on one of these new mobile devices powered by this new Intel processor.
Update: Within 2 nano-seconds… this community informed me that Anousheh Ansari (of Ansari X Prize fame) was the first person to blog from outer space… she did it in August 2006.
But the question remains… what other corners of inner and outer space will these devices penetrate?
Any spelunkers out there? Caves… who has been the deepest blogger and do they need a device?
