Not sure I agree with your gravity and water analogy Peter...that analogy somehow implies some fundamental property...free market does certain things well but it is not the only system that can produce results...China growing 10% is not really a free market, neither are Scandinavian countries where standard of living are the highest in the world...sometimes governments, standard bodies, or wide industrial initiatives are needed to change the way things are getting done...whether these two initiatives that you are describing manager to do anything that remains to be seen ;-)...Kris

Actually the London bus analogy may be apt. When systemic blockages (traffic, finance, regulatory, lack of demand) are resolved, the traffic queued up behind a barrier is released to come through in a flood. In the business environment, this puts the vendors under particular pressure to differentiate themselves so they can capture the pend up demand. (In the London bus case, passengers typically seek the less congested bus since buses are commodity items without differentiating features.)

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.
