The problem with all the open source IC stuff open fabs etc is, as I understand
it, it's dogshit slow compared to our unvetted back doored Intel & friends.
But, surely it's the future (if there is a future). As printers get better and
better... democratization of the silicon. Anyone will be able to fab up
whatever shit they need at home or at shop down the road.
Gibson's the Peripheral has an interesting near future like this.
