The US and Aussie concern over security has cost many well educated American citizens the opportunity to positively contribute to their local tech environments. Issues like spying are always a potential concern, but what about issues like unemployed engineers turning to desperate situations because of lack of work (or relevant work).

Personally, I think it's ridiculous that the government is using espionage as an excuse to lock out Huawei. Smells of antitrust and U.S. corporate lobbying to me.

Maybe the security concerns will be revealed and justified, one day. But if it turns out not to be the case, then these actions that Huawei needed to take (as an enterprise invested in its survival) will just add to the reverse brain drain (out of the US) that has become noticeable lately.

Security risks from Huawei? What about national security risks from Microsoft/Intel/Cisco/Google/Facebook to the other countries in the world? It is simple: don't buy from Huawei, buy from Cisco. Remember Toyota's accelerator pedal.

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.
