Watch for convergence

I really liked her advice to watch where industries are converging and trace back the implications of that convergence to a novel next-gen system or chip design.

Women in engineering

The lack of women in engineering is a problem that we haven't solved in the past 30 years -- when I was studying for my mechanical engineering degree. Back then, the percent of women graduating with engineering degrees was about 15% and that stat remains the same today. Moreover, women (like me I suppose) tend to drop out of engineering early in their careers more frequently than their male counterparts. For the females who have the chops to do engineering, I think many of them take those skills and study biology, or medicine -- perhaps because these fields are more obviously people oriented.

India is not far behind US in giving equal opportunities for women. That is why we see women on top in many top grade financial institutions and even engineering companies

Its so amazing to see so many women entrepreneurs in US and clarity in their thoughts. I guess the society there in US gives equal opportunities to men and women, thats outstanding. They say if you want a progessive nation make sure your women are educated and given equal opportunity.

Coming to issues in music industry, its there everywhere, I would say US is far much better. Atleast you can sue a person and company if your songs are copied, here in India no one gives a second thought for piracy.

Thanks for the interesting interview. How smart for her to say "In general the thing to watch for is where's the next bottleneck -- that's where innovation will be. Look for the stresses on systems..."

I'd love to hear others on the gaps between Silicon Valley and Hollywood and men and women in engineering.
