Steve calls out power integrity as one of the next great test challenges. Agree? Disagree? Have another challenge in mind?

@caleb There's a raft of great engineering pranks that have been published on EETimes, like this one where engineers get back at a marketing manager

That prank is fantastic! I wonder if there is something I could smear on a circuit that would puff when power is applied without doing any damage?

Couldn't agree more about the smart people comment. I married an MIT PhD, and it has enriched my life beyond belief. I only hope that I've reciprocated in other ways!

Steve says, "Find smart people and make them your friends." Excellent advice. I started finding smart people in college, and am fortunate enough to keep finding them throughout my life.

Wow!  Now he is so right with this statement:  "How fast technology evolves, and how slowly engineers adapt to new techniques, methods, and equipment."   And work hard.  Very good advice.

It is nice to read so good post after long hiatus. Thanks for effort. Reading for few hours a day is very essential. This is the difference between egineer guru and cursory engineer.
