Can we call EETimes a social networking media for the engineers? It could be, right?...because we share our views on technical matters here. :)

It's OK to get results once you have done the survey. If you see them before you do it, the herd mentality takes over in a majority of cases (maybe engineers are different though?).

It is customary to show a running real time tally on websites hosting surveys for instant gratification purposes. All the cool sites are doing it. Don't be square EEtimes.

I have found it helpful to connect with some of my professional contacts on linkedin as "friends" in facebook. It is informative to understand the "personal side" of professional contacts.

You really have to consider both usenet and email as social networks. I think they get left out because they existed long before someone came up with the name 'social network'. I even think that the original social network is Ham radio. Granted, it's a restricted set with a fairly high entrance bar, but it is a social network. Even the idea of Twitter seems to me to be a total waste of time.

Does Usenet count as a social medium? It is vastly more useful for contacting other professionals than any web-based nonsense.

I use email for virtually all my social contacts. It is much more powerful and easier to use than other sites I've encountered. I just don't see how Facebook or any other social wedsite can offer me any more than I already have.

Survey flawed? No, surveys are designed to show what the survey designer wanted to see. I agree that never is a much better answer. The only "social" network I use is LinkedIn and not for "social" uses.

Houston, we have a problem: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage Most likely causes: You are not connected to the Internet. The website is encountering problems. There might be a typing error in the address. What you can try: Diagnose Connection Problems More information The link to the survey is not happy. It could be how our company net nannies have configured our internet access or it could be on your end. Personally, I don't use 'social media' for work purposes outside of connections on LinkedIn but even then, I only look at it every couple of months or so. In most cases, I go directly to the manufacturers' websites for information or to pose a question. Too many times, even an engineering oriented forum/blog like Global Spec's CR4 is overflowing with what we might call basic questions that usually are covered pretty well in an undergraduate program. Overall, I find social media to be of little use to the practicing engineer.

Radio
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.
