Gravitational pull, however, has drawn voters to one caption over all others, and that belongs to reader gvictor, who, incidentally, was the last person to offer up a caption for September’s contest. You snooze, you don’t necessarily lose, seems to be the motto of that one (although I recommend captioning early and often!).
To remind you all, here was September’s spacey cartoon and Gvictor’s winning caption:

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.
