This is not totally accurate, the former CEO was Dave Smith. The new CEO has significantly turned the center around by driving private industry investment and work into the center. The merger, based on the press releases does seem to be a logical step for NY. Yes a lot of tax money was invested and this would seem the best option to leverage it to create further job growth.

I wonder what the back-story is on this happy face merger announcement. ITC shows up in a March, 2008 story where former CEO Sam Casella notes that "As far as I'm concerned there are no fears" [of losing funding if then Governor Spitzer resigns]. In June, 2008 Casella is ousted and in that story former CEO Duncan Moore is quoted as noting that "The state and federal government have poured a tremendous amount of money into this [ITC]." Is the merger meaningful or just a way to tidy up a a messy cash sinkhole of public funds?

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.
