I'd love to see Julia implemented on Parallela, a Kickstarter project I was amped about last year, that succeeded in raising almost $900,000 on its goal of $750,000. Described as "A Supercomputer For Everyone," this $99 board, which runs Linux, will support a performance of 26 GFLOPS and should be perfect for a language like Julia.
Enough of the rarified stuff: Here's something that may make you more productive in 2013 ... Mindjet Tasks.
I still think that these apps ... which are free! ... are indispensable planning tools. Late last year, Mindjet released another iOS app that's related to mind-mapping: Mindjet Tasks.
Mindjet Tasks allows you and your team to set up dashboards for projects so you can coordinate planning from wherever you have a cell signal. If you do have some kind of connection, then Mindjet Tasks allows you to make on-the-fly task assignments with real-time updates and team postings. It will also auto-prioritize tasks and can share data with MindJet on OS X and Windows.
I've always been an admirer of Mindjet and Mindjet Tasks looks like a very slick addition to their product line. I'll give it a Gearhead rating of 5 out of 5!
