@rwinvent: EnOcean do seem to be the market leaders in is area at the moment especially with building automation. Their IP portfolio is also pretty sizeable. It's nice to hear others are enthusiastic as well, as Akiba put, it is an interesting and growing field. Like Peter said, I'm happy to hear comments and advice either here or to my email

Hi Simon, I too share your enthusiasm. I have been in the electronics industry for only 5 years (since finishing my BSEE) and have have an MSEE degree and have been busy as a hobbyist hoping to market one of my products some day. If you are interested in the energy harvesting field, you may want to check out EnOcean, it is a company based in Germany which I believe is a spinoff of Siemens. They have some commercialized some of the technology you speak of. This may interest you.

Thanks for pitching in Akiba. I would ask all our readers who have thoughts and opinions for Simon to send them along, either via this forum or direct to his email address. Let's encourage him and try to match his enthusiasm. For example, does Simon need to do an MBA after he gets his PhD? Or does he need to get his hands dirty working for somebody else before launching his own company? Either course of action will probably mean Simon has to leave the north of England but does Simon need to head overseas in a westerly direction to California...or is that sooo 20th century that he should now be heading east to India, Taiwan or China?

Heh heh...yes, wireless sensor networks is certainly an addictive industry to be in. There's no shortage of change, politics, technology, and bizarre people :) Akiba FreakLabs

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
