Actually, abstruse goose is more of a tribute to the legendary XKCD. Yes, I am a fan too. And at the risk of being labelled spam, here are a couple of random strips for the non-initiate. http://xkcd.com/701/ http://xkcd.com/627/

This one isn't from the Abstruse Goose, but it's from XKCD, one of my favorite web comic sites. http://xkcd.com/730/ Someone really needs to calculate the value of the resistor network over on the middle-right.

I haven’t seen all of the cartoons on the Abstruse Goose site you understand (I'm juggling too many ferrets as it is), so if you spot any particularly good ones, please post a comment attached to this column and share your discovery with the rest of us.

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.
