Ben Hutt, mechanical engineer and blogger on Innovation Generation, is our pinch-hitter Caption Captain for April. May is whizzing by and I realized that our April captions had yet to be narrowed and put to the vote.
I'm trying something wild and crazy this month and embedding the ballot right here. So please go ahead and vote below for your favorite caption out of the 83 submitted.
As always, the winner will receive full bragging rights and a color print of the cartoon from Daniel Guidera with
the winning caption in place.
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.
