I don't believe The Big Bang Theory has been cancelled. It remains in the top 10 scripted ratings and is still alive and well as for as I know. Yes, it is surprising though that a cerebral sitcom like this one would not be cancelled by now - Small miracles.

Go Mayim (Amy) go! I would have been proud having her (character) as a friend in college:)! The Big Bang Theory was promoting science (and its geeks)to mainstream America in a clever, funny and quite accurate way. No wonder it was cancelled. Look what is out there now? Maybe this is a sad reflection of what mainstream America is heading to? The move of TI is also clever! Two thumbs up for TI!

While I'm no big fan of mainstream television programming in general, I'll say that more shows like "Big Bang Theory" and (now-cancelled) "Numbers" will go a long way toward influencing the next generation of engineers. This TI-Bialik partnership is a smart extension of that. (And all the more impressive because of her UCLA cred!). ; )

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
