ABSTRACT OF TALK
Separately, the work of John Hennessy and David Patterson has yielded direct, major impacts on the computing industry. John started the MIPS RISC project at Stanford, cofounded MIPS Computer Systems, and directed the DASH project. David drove the Berkeley RISC project, led the RAID effort, and participated in the NOW project that led to clustering technology. Together they authored, \Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach,\ considered for over a decade to be essential reading for every serious student and practitioner of computer design. Join us as John Mashey facilitates the discussion of the past, present, and future of computing through the personal stories of these exceptional people.
