What better way to start off the new year than with a caption contest? Lend your brains and fingers to us for a moment and offer up the best caption for this comic. Frankly, I think that court jester should get a better costume.
Thanks to our talented artist Daniel Guidera, our monthly tradition continues strong for 2014. Simply leave a comment with your best caption and yours could be picked to be the official winner. The winner will get the original, in color, with their caption attached. Feel free to enter multiple times; we all know that once those good ideas start flowing it can be hard to get them to stop!
If you need some inspiration, check out some of the entries from last year!
Scientist: "The lab boys in the alchemy department came up with this MRI thing, that lets us see what our king is thinking. We first squeeze some juice from the head, then the sushi chef tastes it, and lets us know what HE thinks."
King: "I can already tell you what I think...let's cut off the scientist's head, and see if there is anything in there! By the way, what does MRI stand for?"
Scientist: "Well, it was My Revelation Idea, but I heard the Beta Testers calling it, Much Rubbish Inside."
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.
