@Max: Heres some food for thought and discussion, should OEM's be required to advise that their is a bug in their software. I had a long career as a user of electronic fire alarms (Safety Critical?) and had a hard job getting OEM's to tell me when they had an upgrade for thier systems due to a software problem.

Wish I could be there, turns out I have a prior commitment. I've spent a lot of my career on certification to the highest levels of DO-178 so I"ll hate to miss it. There's so much we're on the threshold of going into too like how do you ensure security AND safety in the worlds of both IoT and V2V ("self-driving car") communication? This is the first I've heard about this chat though, maybe next time we could get a bit more advance notice?

Carry a rolled-up New York Times under your arm and a Carnation in your button hole so we recognize you! :-)

Mad Magazine used to have these little doodles on the margins of the page (maybe they still do). I still remember one where there is a Scotsman in full regalia with kilt and sporran saying on the telephone "I'll be the one wearing a carnation!"

I used to love Mad Magazine when I was a teenager -- when I've seen it more recently it just doesn't seem as funny as it used to -- is this just me growing old, or has the humor in the magazine gone down-hill?

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.
