I wasn't able to finish Winter's Tale at the time, many years ago, so I might revisit it. I do remember that I was impressed that Helprin's word processor was, exclusively, a Mont Blanc fountain pen. Brad

I've not read that, but when I was in Oslo, Norway earlier this year I went to the Kon-Tiki Museum to see Thor Heyerdahl's raft and then to the Fram Museum next door wehere I saw the Fram - -the boat that was used by Roald Amundsen in his southern polar expedition from 1910 to 1912

Hi Raul -- I would LOVE to hear what you think about this book (I'd also love to hear how YOU describe it to other people when you've finished :-)

Well I am intrigued enough to want to see the movie! One of my favorite books is Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing.

According to the Wikipedia ( http://bit.ly/OlBBBp ) a Film Adaptation of Winter's Tale is planned. This could be MAGNIFICENT ... or if could be a DISASTER ... I'm hoping for the best...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
