My secondhand copy of the Dispossessed arrived in my office -- but now it's on the shelf with all of the other books I want to read...

@Bar-Rollin, I'd be happy to share thoughts with you any time... how can we contact each other? I believe that you'll agree with me that /The Dispossessed/ is *not* about social systems; it's about what it means to be human, and the prices we pay. Why must I suddenly mention /The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas/? :-) cheers, - vic

Found it: it's in /The Language of the Night/ Amazon, etc.

And lest we forget: Patrick McGoohan's /The Prisoner/ TV series! It still holds up very well.

I used to have the Carver Mean one and the Thomas Cuthbert one -- not the other one (I say used to because I've been trying to clear my shelves of out of date books over the last few years)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
