…………………………….o*******o            AVID and Alexey, a russian speaker, travelled with me from Paris to Besançon by car. A very nice moment, I was surprised we had so much to talk about, despite we were perfect strangers one another. I learnt a lot during the 5 hours of our global discussion, and a lot more when we got back together to Paris a few days later.

The day after, David Hulton gave his talk about FPGA’s, which I had never heard about. I didn’t catch anything about it, I was really lost. I had made a self-commitment not to interview or film anyone unless I would understand a little bit of what he was doing. So I simply decided to skip David. But he challenged me later : « So, are you going to interview us ? ». Couldn’t refuse any longer, and didn’t want to. I asked him about

  • another definition of hacking : mastering a system by getting to its limits.

but he didn’t precisely answer this one, too abstract maybe, or my English accent was really bad. Instead of that, he told me about his vision of hacking, and how he got interested in FPGA’s. I must confess although I was shaking head to help him develop his speech, I couldn’t understand a bit of it. Too much technical stuff : DES, FPGA, chip, CPU etc. I got all that later, when I translated and subtitled the interview. And yes, finally it makes sense !
