Cool!

When I was a kid, many of my friends were fantasizing about the unrealistic goal of becoming professional football, basketball or baseball stars. During that same period, my equivelent and even more unrealistic fantasy was to be the one to discover the Unified Field Theory (that's what we called the "Theory of Everything" back then). That, and breaking Derek Clayton's marathon record (2:08:33). I didn't ask for much. Did I?

@Max: "I can't imagine how this feels -- waiting so long for proof to come in -- the same with Peter Higgs and the Higgs Boson"

Andrei Linde and Alan Guth proposed the inflationary theory of the Big-Bang circa 1980-1981. They have waited for this more than 30 years!! It smells to Nobel Prize now, but they'll have to wait until 2015 as a minimum -- AFAIK, Nobel candidates deadline for 2014 is already closed ;-)

@Caleb: I just love watching him hear that his theory has been backed up by data. What a great day for him!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
