I was discussing some new developments in computer architecture with my friend (and CEO) Mac Dougherty one day when he suggested that I might start a blog on the subject. This intrigued me because, since building my first computer (Dual Celeron 300a with modded slockets! (the forum that started it all)) I have appreciated reading commentary on computer architecture. I still get a rush when reading great articles by likes of Jon Stokes, David Kanter, and Michael Schuette, and I also love checking tech news sites like HardOCP etc., which are updated at a much higher frequency. What was never satisfied for me was a need for computer architecture analysis and commentary updated on a more frequent basis than is possible for in-depth articles, and so I will endeavor to do something about it.
