You are right -- if I could take my iPad back 15 years it would have blown everyone's socks off!

Likewise with today's technology versus 15 years ago! Think about the impact of a touch screen tablet PC back in the late 90s; wow that would have been like lightening. The fast march of technology and software tools is both dizzying and wonderful to behold. Can't wait for the next 10 years of advancements.

I just re-read this -- it blows me away that the first ascent of the Nose took 45 days, and now folks are doing it in a couple of hours... Can you imagine if we took today's climbers back in a time machine ... and on the 44th day of the original ascent our guys just raced past saying "we started a couple of hours ago" (grin)

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.
