Well said, Gabe. Reminds me of FDR's first inaugural address - "Only thing we have to fear is fear itself". There is a lot of uncertainty regarding when the credit market will return to normalcy. Until that time it is survival mode for most companies. This is really a bane of capitalism where a single most influential buyer is the corporations. This in my view is going to accelerate m&a even more (we are already seeing a number of these) and encourage barter system (i.e. virtual money transfer between vendor and supplier). Piecemeal deals and backend loaded transactions are encouraged. John Cooley's interview with Rajeev (podcast) was interesting (Thanks John for venturing into this new media. It was just perfect). What is your prediction on DAC? Will Magma withdraw from DAC? Rajeev did not give a concrete answer for this question.

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.
