NO RATINGS
"I moderated a panel with George W. Bush and Bill Clinton...yadda, yadda..."finishing each other's sentences"..yadda, yadda. So this certainly adds to the “the-fix-is-in” argument but more curious is what your average out-of-work American software engineer has to say about this: ..."for every H1b visa, six new jobs are created."

… they understand there's a roadblock and they are the roadblock," That's why we voted for them. And that's all they need to understand. Besides, I hate this language. The word "roadblock" infers an impediment to forward motion. The Republican constituency does not consider higher taxes, stifling regulation and greater dependence on statists to be forward motion. Just the opposite, and rightfully so. It is true however that the Republican establishment in Washington sees immigration as a major reason they lost. And they will no doubt waste their time and future political capital chasing it down. I would caution against that assertion though. A study by some Manhattan Institute muckity-muck concluded that 75% of Hispanics vote D for the same reasons that a whole lot of other D-voters vote D. Only 25% saw immigration as the key. But doesn't that relly confuse the issue as it pertains to the technology labor market? As it pertains to us? Are we really seeing a massive influx of South Americans in technology, or pressure thereof?

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.
