Software is easier to "finish". If it doesn't work, you ship it, and next release it's either a feature where they turn it on after you fixed it, or it's a bug fix if it's something that is necessary, even if it is half-baked. Hardware HAS to work, or there's a warranty claim or recall. Silicon is the ultimate extreme...it can't be patched with mod wires (easily). Slackers go into software, perfectionists do hardware - it's ALWAYS been that way.

Innovation is about creation (not only passion). It seems doubtful that meaningful creators take jobs that are not of their interest. Creative endeavors have to come from within the individual and no external factors can generate that personally intense, generation-creation process. The 'best' university in the world will quash and crush it in my opinion, but my opinion means nothing.

Mr.Lowe wants to reignite passion for hardware. I was doing Professor and HOD dept of ECE at Sona College of Technology from yr 2000 to yr 2005 five years. One of the best engineering college in India. With this experience i state that all the students are interested to do in hardware embedded and other soft wares related to their respective hardware projects. No re ignition is required. Rather where do they find hard ware jobs for their interest? Limited scope for hardware. My faculty taught from circuits to microwaves and almost 30 electronics and communication subjects for 3 years.Finally 99 percent of them land on software jobs making all our teachings going into useless.This is one of the major reason i came off my teaching profession. So i am of the big opinion that hardware teaching to be specialized and those learn them to be absorbed in to the same stream.

Yes indeed exciting for interns. TI is making good use of the former National Semiconductor facility: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4238071/Texas-Instruments-opens-lab-for-mixed-signal--analog

I liked the phrase "We do what we do because it's fun, and it's even more fun it it's important". I didn't consider the gaming field a good place to invest time and effort but now that I read it it would seems logical. But I think now that mobile computing is redefining the market, the new hardware ideas should be for that... mobile. Also medical will get into a new wave... though i think is not exactly medical applications but Home medical applications. With Bluetooth Low Energy and what the Bluetooth SIG is coming up with, and with people aging and becoming more aware and responsible for their health, the Home Medical applications will become more and more popular. This are exciting times in which we're living. don't you think?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
