Bill de hÓra:

I think that increased data volumes will impact day to day programing work far more than multicore will. A constant theme in the work I've done in the last few years has been dealing with larger and larger datasets...

Good luck explaining to data professionals and system architects that centralised relational databases are not the right place to start anymore.

Another reason not to care so much where the "core" is as long as you got enough of them, the data close enough at hand, and a programming language to use them easily.
