Stackoverflow & forums

One of the problems I see with forums, some subjects more so than others, is that you have to filter through an awful lot of kids asking someone to do their engineering homework before you can find anything useful.

I agree @Duane...I have found forums to be totally useless...people who post things typically don't know what they are talking about...people that do know are too busy to post, or would rather collect dollars for their advice...Kris

IMO it depends greatly on the forum, which in turn depends on the people who participate.  This forum is quite good for general EE tech and FPGAs.  element14 is particularly good for development boards.

No question, there will be differences between forums...but you will always find few people thinking they know something while they have no clue...better solution is to built a silicon compiler so you don't have to ask any questions...with the power of IBM Watson AI system it should be doable...and then machines with start designing ICs and we can all go home and rest ;-)...Kris

Great future!  We can pop The Forbin Project (1970) into the DVD player, or lie back and read E.M. Forster's The Machine Stops (1909).

The question is not "Do we need Watson?"  The question is "will Watson need us?"

I think we need Watson for now so can start relaxing and watching the DVDs you mention...but later Watson will not need us, the AI system will decide what is the next step, we won't be involved, maybe in sales ;-)...Kris
