Back from the UK. Last Monday I presented a tutorial "Optimizing OpenCL for Altera FPGAs" at the 2nd International Workshop on OpenCL. Great but intimate conference. Next spring in Boston.

Link to my slides below (PDF if you like). (Contributions also from colleagues, of course.)

Couldn't haven't said it better. Like unwrapping a happy memory all over again. Randy Bachman's joy is infectious.

Books channel:
Enjoying yet another Arkady Renko novel: Stalin's Ghost. A good one in the series that started with Gorky Park so many years ago. Medium pace rolling boil. One to savour.

Computer channel:
James Fallows writes about how his wife's Gmail account was cracked, her online life destroyed (and recovered!) and what it means for any of us with online lives. Also a peek inside Google: attitude toward data security, cloud based learning, and what it means to be "data driven".

Computer channel: If you ever have to think about concurrent multiprocessors, this is an excellent place to start, focused on x86: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~pes20/weakmemory/cacm.pdf (preprint of an article from the July 2010 Communications of the ACM)
