World’s First 1,000-Processor Chip | UC Davis
"microchip containing 1,000 independent programmable processors has been designed by a team at the University of California, Davis, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The energy-efficient “KiloCore” chip has a maximum computation rate of 1.78 trillion instructions per second and contains 621 million transistors.
...KiloCore chip was fabricated by IBM using their 32 nm CMOS technology.
...each processor is independently clocked
...can execute 115 billion instructions per second while dissipating only 0.7 Watts,
...executes instructions more than 100 times more efficiently than a modern laptop processor."

About the Book | Procrastination and Science
"How to Stop Putting Things Off and Start Getting Stuff Done"
About the Theory | Procrastination and Science
"...we are more likely to pursue goals or tasks that are pleasurable and that we are likely to attain. Consequently, we are more likely to put off, to procrastinate, difficult tasks with unenjoyable qualities. Even more important regarding procrastination is the effects of delay. We like our rewards not only to be large but also to be immediate. Consequently, we will most likely procrastinate any tasks that are unpleasant in the present and offer rewards only in the distant future"
