Hey @Max, maybe we should also talk about the new prize from Bell Labs http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1322428 as it relates to the future of reality.

OMG!!! That is incredible -- now imagine if you didn;t have to use your spmartphone or tablet to see this, but instead it was projected directly onto your retina -- the scary thing is that if someone else took your AR system over, you wouldn't know if what you were seeing was real or not.

I look forward to "seeing" you in the chat on Friday

Max, if you're interested in the whole Batlló experience look at this blog from Kim Davis on Future Cities:

I will do so, but not today I am afraid -- at the moment I am up to my armpits in alligarots fighting fires without a paddle (I never metaphor I didn't like) ... too much to do and not enough time to do it all (sad face)

Hi Max, Back from sitting in a tin box on the escarpment of the Durasic Coastline (Dorset England).

I some times worry that Crusty has become an augmented reality?

Hi Max, Weather was good and the beer and cider very quaffable the resulting vision problems were not due to Augmented reality issues.

As long as I have done my house chores then I will be with you all on Friday.

Alligarots?

@Max "I am up to my armpits in alligarots"

Alligarots? Might that be the French subspecies?

And perhaps most importantly, are they known to swim the Channel?

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.
