I nominate this blog and its posted comments for the EET Longevity Award!  It's been going strong for well over a year now.  If EET doesn't have such an award, its should!

@TonyTib: No, go for this, it's got school pencil yellow (and some handy accessories)...

I do like the look of this -- the only downside is that the pen end is constantly exposed, so no good for storing in my leather belt pouch (sad face)

@Wnderer: I think a Dr Who Sonic Screwdriver pen is more your style.

@Antedeluvian: ...you may have trouble at airport security with this

I have enough trouble getting through airport security with my leather belt (see this blog) -- I think I'll pass on this pen LOL

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.
