Last year, a collective of cryptocurrency fans pooled millions of dollars to buy a copy of the story bible for director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s legendary never-made adaptation of the novel Dune . After winning a November auction, the group voted last week on a direction for the project and got promptly roasted online for allegedly not understanding what they’d bought. Their plans included an animated series inspired by Jodorowsky’s Dune , and as any good collector likely knows, buying a commemorative copy of a script or storyboard doesn’t give you the right to shoot your own version. The actual situation seems more ambiguous than some critics are suggesting. The Dune story bible’s owners, known as Spice DAO (short for “decentralized autonomous organization”), appear perfectly aware they don’t own Dune itself . Instead, they’re committing to an original series “inspired by” the book. The whole scheme might help illustrate why art can’t be reduced to a neat series of … [Read more...] about What exactly is the Jodorowsky’s Dune crypto collective trying to make, anyway?

With an increase of 5.1 per cent from 2021, the global IT spending is projected to reach $4.5 trillion this year, a new report has said. Despite the potential impact of the Omicron variant, economic recovery with high expectations for digital market prosperity will continue to boost technology investments, according to market research firm Gartner . "2022 is the year that the future returns for the CIO," John-David Lovelock, distinguished research vice president at Gartner, said in a statement. "They are now in a position to move beyond the critical, short-term projects over the past two years and focus on the long term. Simultaneously, staff skills gaps, wage inflation and the war for talent will push CIOs to rely more on consultancies and managed service firms to pursue their digital strategies," Lovelock added.

Intel has placed the first order with ASML for a new, advanced chipmaking tool that will cost "significantly" more than $340 million, as semiconductor manufacturers look to get ahead in a booming industry. Alongside better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings, ASML said on Wednesday it had received orders for five of its next- generation lithography machines, plus an order for an even newer model that is still being designed. In a separate joint statement, the companies said Intel was the buyer. ASML's most advanced machines in current commercial production, known as EUV lithography systems because of the "Extreme Ultraviolet" light waves they use to map out the circuitry of computer chips, are as big as a bus and cost around $150 million each. A cutting-edge chip plant needs 9-18 of these machines, which are one of the biggest capital costs for chipmakers. ASML is the only maker of such machines and its EUV customers include the world's biggest … [Read more...] about Intel to get chipmaking tool from ASML system for over $340 million
