During the Olympics we were told over and again that the Olympic Competition Comity cleared Pistorius' on the basis that in their view his prosthetics gave him no advantage over a fully legged runner. This SA analysis clearly states otherwise and it seems quite logical. I wonder how something so obvious could have been over looked? But for my money I just grew tired of the story. How many minutes spent by NBC on the Pistorius story (and nearly everything else Mary Carillo did) could have been used to cover other events where actual gold medals were won?

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.
