I think this would be a nice idea. It would be interesting, in 
particular, to discuss a bit the process of determining whether things 
scale (e.g., why you chose to run the cases you ran -- namely to 
evaluate weak and strong scaling).

If you create the data and a rough first version of the text, I'd of 
course be happy to help with completing the writing!
