re: What's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable

NO RATINGS
As a longtime lab denizen I find this belief that you can get good quality measurements through a layer of remote switching gear and there-and-back cable runs, something between humorous and puzzling. If your equipment management fantasy requires me to put all this "stuff" into my carefully crafted bench or rack setups, I'll say "no thanks", eat the budgetary cost and lock the door. Maybe it works for you if everything is "digital" and "slow". But if your product can be tested with a bunch of long cables, switches and random reallocations / e-teardowns in the mix, you're not working on very challenging stuff. It all seems like another matrix-management pipe dream to me. Works great if you've got a sea of uniform and adequate resources. Now tell me the story about how the one guy who can do it, works when you randomly redeploy the one critical piece of gear that makes his rack work.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
