Our next live online chat will commence on Friday 14 March 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time). You'll have to work out your local time from these clues (you can always use this handy-dandy Time Zone Converter).
Your host will be Max Maxfield, and our guest will be Michael Barr, CTO and Co-Founder of the Barr Group. As Michael says: "Embedded software can be dangerous, even lethal." In this week's live online chat, Michael will be available to answer questions on such topics as Therac-25 (a radiation therapy medical device that massively over-dosed 6 patients from 1985-87), the Patriot missile defense system's deadly failure to intercept a Scud on February 25, 1991, and Toyota's issues with unintended acceleration.
