NO RATINGS
If I were picking any from Author C Clarke, Rendezvous with Rama would have to be at the top of my list. 2001 was good but I wouldn't class it as "must read"

Near the top of my list would be "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card. Other favorites: "Ringworld" by Larry Niven; "Startide Rising" by David Brin; "Hyperion", "Endymion", and "Ilium" by Dan Simmons.

I do like a lot of Arthur C Clarke -- it's just that none screamed out at me as being on the "must read" list...

You mentioned Arthur C Clarke, Max, but none of his books....the 2001 series (2001, then 2010: Odyssey Two, 2061: Odyssey Three and 3001: The Final Odyssey) would have to be included in any list of mine. I appreciate that 2001 is also a film - actually the book and the film were made concurrently - but it stands on its own as a good read.

I would like to reiterate that my suggestions in this column were absolutely off the “top of my head” – and I reserve the right to add more as they pop into my mind…

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.
