Currently listening to a remote software meeting on BM@N experiment. They are talking about super-computers and grid computing system. The same was on IAXO meeting yesterday. People are more inclined to buy more powerfull computers than to work on better software that requires fewer resources. I hope that kotlin scientific community will be able to change that.

Unfortunately this is a rare combination - five somewhat rare factors in one place.

Yup, even if we don't change the world, we can make life easier for those who are around us 🙂 Small clusters of happiness 🙂
