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.

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.

"Reading for few hours a day is very essential."

Reading what? Technical books, articles, blogs? Reading tweets? Reading novels?

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.

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!

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?

@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

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