zdnet: do we need to wipe the slate with x86?

ein schon etwas aelterer artikel - 2008 - der speziell im lichte von meltdown + spektre nichts von seiner damaligen aktualitaet verloren hat.

a job is "Snow Crashy" ... definition ;)

In the old days, she would have written computer programs for a living. Nowadays, she writes fragments of computer programs. These programs are designed by Marietta and Marietta’s superiors in massive week-long meetings on the top floor. Once they get the design down, they start breaking up the problem into tinier and tinier segments, assigning them to group managers, who break them down even more and feed little bits of work to the individual programmers.

Snow Crash, Neal Stehpehson, written in 1992

If you want something done in real life, the usual petitioning process is something like this: Find a person, yowl at them, scratch the sofa, knock things off the shelf, and generally be a nuisance until they stop what they're doing to satisfy your demands.

"Was die Netze der Eisenbahnen, Autobahnen und Kanäle in einem anderen Zeitalter waren, sind heute die Telekommunikations-, Informations- und Computernetze" zitierte Friedrich den österreichischen Bundeskanzler Bruno Kreisky.
