Kris- I understand your point: in the big scheme of things, no one would dispute that disruptions of the chip equipment supply chain pale in comparison to the humanitarian consequences of the disaster in Japan. But we are EE Times--our readers count on us to report on the possible implications of this tragedy on the chip industry.

Extremely valuable and timely analysis. Please keep updating. This is a huge tragedy for the people of Japan. But supply chains disruptions also affect livelihood for many people across the globe as supplies get interrupted and factories shut down. I'm sure many executives are worried about how this will impact their supply chain, hit their financials and thereby employees paychecks. The tragedy brings home the importance of proactive supply chain risk management to ensure that our supply chains have the capacity to withstand at least a few precious days worth of interruptions to give us time to execute recovery plans. - Bindiya Vakil, Resilinc
