With respect to doors being smashed in the name of delivering a subpoena, I don't want to sound paranoid or sound like one of those survivalist guys, which I'm not, but given today's political climate, particularly taking into consideration whether or not you live on a neighborhood susceptible to this type of police action (it wouldn't and doesn't happen in affluent communities) one might want to consider installing a reinforced door or even, perhaps, a fake door that is actually a wall, with the real door located elsewhere. This sounds ridiculous, but but it is a fact that the wrong doors have been smashed down and innocent people killed. (Just watch any episode of the TV show Cops (What we now consider as normal and "acceptable" is scary.)) Unless and until Congress and/or the courts do something about this, what I'm describing may be the only practical solution short of moving to another neighborhood. Wayne.

I agree. You are a highly insightful writer. Wayne.

I agree RC aircraft rules are a good place to start, but they are usually over unpopulated areas and noted to pilots. What happens when everywhere is opened to drones? As a private pilot I'm very worried about one of those drones colliding into me.

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.
