That's the theme of the latest issue of CTWatch Quarterly, v4i1. I have a strange little soft spot for this journal and will read just about anything it publishes, even if it's only very vaguely related to my main concerns here.
Anyways, here goes the TOC from the Urgent Computing: Exploring Supercomputing's New Role issue of CTWatch Quarterly!
