Another one that just sprung into my mind is "The Journey of Joenes" by Robert Sheckley Also, I just read a recent (2011) release called "Robopacalypse" by Daniel H Wilson -- now I want to get his other book called "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" :-)

How could we have forgotten "The Postman" by David Brin?

Excellent book! Not as popular as it should be owing to its being assigned in literature classes :-)

Yes! Fantastic movie especially for us wannabe hippies. And funny too.

I have never heard of this -- but I just checked on Amazon and it has stellar reviews -- I just added it to my (ever-growing) wish list...

No one has mentioned A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr. (it won a Hugo).

I'd forgotten all about Hothouse -- that was an interesting one... Sorry to say that I never could get excited about Hubbard's writings...

The recent OTB was in colour, 1990s sometime I think, starred Bryan Brown among others. I've never seen the original. Good book, as I remember, but then all of Neville Shute's are good.

Soylent Green was a good film, I seem to remember Max remarking on the bit where Sol dies (to films of Earth when it was beautiful, and Beethoven's "Pastoral" - I liked that too but the way things are going I can see us ending up in something similar. I think SG was based on a Harry Harrison story called "Make room! Make room!" - Yes it was, just wikipedia'd it....

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.
