SallyF has a point. Well, several, but I'll leave the recreational habits of the current president to her; I understand that he only smokes cigarettes now. But as far as investment initiatives, who is getting what money? Are these firms marketing a valuable property that is just on the cusp of success, needing only a helping hand? Or is the money going to go, with much fanfare, into yet another government-subsidized sinkhole, like windmill farms or solar energy farms covering areas the size of Europe? Or minority fronted companies actually run by the good old boys? Maybe we'll have special e-book readers for feminists. Goofier things happen. For that matter, why are these initiatives needed at all? There's venture capital out there for good ideas: you know the drill: build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. I am waiting, without holding my breath, to see what unfolds here.

Good news, hope this "Invest in America Alliance" can do to the US competitiveness what Semi Tech did to the US semiconductor industry.

What a joke. IBM's money is scheduled to go to 3 companies that would not need a handout from IBM if their products were worth anything. Obama wrote in his autobiography that he spent his college years snorting cocaine, so as an unindicted felon, it is ironic that so many are fawning over his ridiculous attempts to appear serious. Is this affirmative action?

This on top of the Intel's commitment to support the research in US university is good news for both educational institute and industry.

This is great news. Hopefully a large percentage of these funds will go to start-ups in the Portland, OR area where Intel has a large presence and venture capital has traditionally been scarce.

The news is wonderful. With the backing of Intel, the direction of innovation and entrepreneurship may be less blurry. First thing first, what are the industries that need the most support?

I think it is a wonderful initiative. Applause for Intel. Much dedication to US, its parent.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
