The article features the computer software company Interactive Supercomputing of Waltham, Massachusetts. Its chief executive officer (CEO) is Bill Blake. Its key investors are Pete Peterson, Edward Roberts, Flagship Ventures, Rock Maple Ventures, and CommonAngels. Interactive Supercomputing allows for powerful parallel computing on desktop personal computers (PC). The Idea makes supercomputing possible for those with shallower pockets, and smaller facilities, than government laboratories. Interactive's way of programming computing clusters was spun off from research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has gotten raves from the likes of U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Science Foundation.
