That's an incredible display of lights in that video. It seems all that's missing is some snow. And here I am sitting with a whole driveway full of the stuff and I'm giving it all away for free. Just another logistics nightmare. All kidding aside, I can't wait to see some of the ideas that the students come up with for this contest. When it comes to designing with LED lighting I'm still a kid at heart. Good luck to all the participants. E.H.

I have looked at the video clip and I can testify I have never seen so many Xmas lights any where else neither in a government building nor a private housing. I guess it makes great sense to use LED lighting where there is such a huge demand for decorating lights which normally stays on 24/7 for few weeks. Great incentives for kids of all ages!

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.
