I'm sure to have the odd mis-spell in this post. You don't pan someone else's work and get away with it ;-). Apostrophes and commas sprinkled through at random complement almost germanic sentence construction and the occasional incorrect word selection. I guess the same clear thinking that produced the text decided not to proof-read it.

The most obvious one, visitor's instead of visitors, is repeated twice but numerous other plurals are correct. I had the correct use of apostrophes drummed into me by my dad and numerous teachers, and I always wonder exactly how the mis-users decide when to use an apostrophe and when not to. There seems to be no rhyme or reason in it. And not to be picky Brian, but you said "The attraction in question is the fountain commissions by the Hyatt...." Shouldn't that be "commissioned"? ;-)

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.
