Challenge Assumptions Episode 32 – Edward Trice – Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking

Edward Trice - Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking

Edward Trice of Lightning Cloud Computing, and Liquid Nitrogen Overclocking, is joining us today.  His company was responsible for building some of the fastest overclocked computers that caused the Flash Crash of 2010.  Unbeknownst to him, his machines were purchased to gain trading advantages with their suped-up processing modifications.  This led to a 9 trillion dollar loss in one day.  Luckily the company pulled back once it realized the ramifications of this type of trading. 

He is also the creator of Gothic Chess, a spinoff of chess that garnered the fascination of Bobby Fischer, one of the greatest chess players of all time. 

Edward has had a fascinating career in technology, and today he shares some of his awesome stories with us!
