"Do you think the Afghanistan drawdown will affect your business?" What an insane, offensive, and callous question. Yours is the worst kind of porn - over 100,000 civilians killed in Iraq with your "toys", and over 10,000 of our own sons and daughters. Do you think your "weapons" had affected childhood memories when an orphan's parents were shredded right in front of her? Or a kid whose father finally comes home and they have a closed casket memorial for him? Or chain guns blasting children in a van that had stopped to take gunshot victims to a hospital (you don't have the stomach to watch this entire clip, I'm sure: )? Then refusing to allow a critically ill girl with cannon shrapnel in her to be taken to the nearest hospital. Yeah, damn shame the you can't afford to kill more civilians over oil pipeline routes and in the name of STEALING from the Social Security surplus I and others put in place to give to profiteering military contractors to KILL with - such "evoking of memories" you don't want to have. Yeah right - I mourn YOUR loss. Remember, you asked.... By the way, I am an American & not a Muslim, nor a sympathizer of either side.

So what do you think? You're the folks out in the trenches. I'd love to hear the way things look from where you sit. K

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.
