"because the use of a homemade time machine is frowned upon in certain circles"

 

Boy oh boy!... Is that ever the truth!


In fact, I've known some former job-supervisors who did ( and probably still do ) very, VERY, seriously believe that ANY concern with such-and-similar matters ( whether it's just a playful preoccupation with such abstractions or not ) should be restricted to being within the exclusive purview of their own personal versions of a popular deity.


And, let me tell you... those types ( sometimes just like a character straight from out of a Victor Hugo novel or a Ben Kingsley role ) really are, often, perfectly willing to go well out of their way to NOT do the careers of any such transgressors any good at all!

 

Bad bosses... really bad bosses. And how that manifests itself, especially in some Central Valley communities, is something that has to be experienced to be understood.


A sad thing, really...


... those folks who imagine themselves to be justified in trying to put the stops on the raw creativity of others. All for what is often really little more than being just for the sake of pure self-validation.


And... apparently... without realizing that the root cause for most of such endeavors is that it's just plain fun!

But why is bacon such a cultural icon right now? What started that trend? Please explain.

I don't know what's more exciting: robot apocalypse or breakfast. Both sound like fun.

Well I know that I can't WAIT for this event - I hear the bacon is going to be pretty good, along with the entertaining discussions.

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.
