Maybe the worker tried that once and got a new one reamed for questioning authority. Now he just follows the blueprints and keeps his opinions to himself - and his job.

I agree -- if you were working on this, wouldn't you say to the boss "Hey -- this is stupid" -- take #9 for example, didn't anyone say "how will people actually use this ATM?"

I guess the construction companies should have CAD tools like our electronic design to validate design from Arch. specification to lower details before prototype/tape-out :). btw even if designs were wrong, i wonder what the workers were thinking while creating these masterpieces [grin]

I'm hard-pushed to pick my favorites out of all of these -- every time I look at any of them I wince ... they all make you wonder what the contractor was thinking... ... but I have to say that #9 and #11 sort of grab my attention...

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.
