Gabe, your comment that "most of the "talkers" address the subject as if it was a new thing" reminds me that in EDA in particular, it seems at times as though we are living in George Orwell's 1984: after 5-10 years, everything old has been flushed down the "memory hole" and everything old is "new" again. For those of us with memories longer than just a few years, it can be both frustrating and amusing to see old concepts resurrected time and again. At the same time, it is important to remember history; as Santayana so famously said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" (which goes along with Karl Marx's "Hegel remarks somewhere that history tends to repeat itself. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.") I used to work with someone who commented that every new generation of engineers tends to repeat the mistakes of the previous generation, albeit in new forms! But I certainly agree with your sentiments: EDA must move from a hardware-centric view towards a complete product view including all aspects of systems.
