@Max, now this is snow and ice. It's gone now after sliding down and hitting my neighbor's house. Roofers are up there right now installing snow guards and rails.

@MeasurementBlues: You wouldn't understand because it never snows where you are, right?

You might think so since I'm in Huntsville, Alabama, but in fact the temperatures fell to 5F about 4 weeks ago and we were snowed in for 3 days about 2 weeks ago...

Newt is probably a fascinating person with which to have a discussion if you keep politics out.

@MeasurementBlues: I wouldn't want to be in the same time zone as Newt.

I actually found him to be a very knowledgable and pleasant guy -- but then we didn't talk about politics, more the history of technology and stuff.

@max, well at least your closet didn't leak because of an ice dam on the roof. That happened to me. Then the ice dam slid off the roof and hit my neighbor's house, destroying a screen. Now I'm having a roofer install show guards to prevent that from happening again. They'd better get here soon and finish today because it's going to snow again on Monday.

You wouldn't understand because it never snows where you are, right?

In 2001 I was invited to be a speaker at a private conference in Kaua'i -- there were just two speakers -- I was the "warm up" act before Newt Gingrich -- Ha! Take that! :-)

@MeasurementBlues: ...and where do you keep these items, on the floor?

Actually, it was the upper rack that collapsed -- I keep on meaning to put it back up - -but since I gave most of the old clothes to the goodwill, the lower rack is only partially used with my T-shirts, Hawaiian shirts, and jeans ... so there's no rush :-)

@Max,

In 2007, the IEEE EMC Society held it's annual Symposium in Honolulu. I saved my air miles to pay for my wife's ticket and paid for my daughter's. We left a week early, and flew into Maui for a few days then went to the big island, then to Honolulu. We were gone 10 days in all. Best trip ever. Snorkeling was great.

What happens when a conference is in Hawaii is the conference will get a record number of paper submissions (I wonder why). It seems there were more presenters than attendees. Exhibitors sent fewer people to the booths and I jnew afew people who expected to go but were pulled on short notice when their companies decided to cut back.

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.
