Same Process, Faster Convergence

This seems to be the pattern in networking technology waves. Initial networks were purely internal business networks (think Vines, Novell, and others) that created specific silos of communication. These were swept aside by TCP/IP, but it took a long time. Chat rooms were (and to some degree still are) popular for siloed group communication, but Twitter expanded that to world-wide proportions.

The shift seems to happen when people realize the power of world-wide communications and get over the need to fence off their information. It seems like that is happening faster these days then it has in the past.

There are way too many non-interoperable "interoperability" standards.

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.
