  1. I tend not to edit Wikipedia myself, I find my technical prose is usually inadequate. However, I just took a glance at the LabVIEW entry on Wikipedia and I am horrified. There are inaccuracies, irrelevancies, it's choppy, and generally poorly gathered. Too many cooks here I feel. I wonder who is responsible for this content? I understand that the general public are required to maintain these pages, but is there a core group of enthusiasts that like to keep this page accurate?

  3. I'm not an expert on computer science, so my opinion doesn't carry much weight, but I'll stand by that argument any day I think the inadvertent development in massively paralleled architectures for the relatively isolated field of GPUs caught most manufacturers by surprise. Although there's a massive amount of momentum that needs to be reversed, they're almost falling over each other to catch up with the realisation that this architectural arrangement presents us with an easier path of progression throughout processor development in general. In Bret's presentation he ends by pronounc
  4. I found it quite interesting that the presenter was able to make us realise, through his clever time travelling presentation, that we've been stuck following a path of relatively narrow development in the computer science field. I always find it astonishing to read that the entrepreneurs of yesteryear were sometimes way ahead of their time. So far ahead that we can still learn from their profound ideas today.
