Nicholas Carr picked up on a recent IBM super-super-supercomputer project call Kittyhawk, which he facetiously refers to as “one computer to rule them all.”

IBM has launched an ambitious initiative, called Project Kittyhawk, aimed at building “a global-scale shared computer capable of hosting the entire Internet as an application.” Forget Thomas Watson’s apocryphal remark that the world may need only five computers. Maybe it needs just one.

Wow. Talk about thinking big. I’m not sure I can imagine a computer with that kind of capacity.

Can you?
