Wish I could be there, turns out I have a prior commitment. I've spent a lot of my career on certification to the highest levels of DO-178 so I"ll hate to miss it. There's so much we're on the threshold of going into too like how do you ensure security AND safety in the worlds of both IoT and V2V ("self-driving car") communication? This is the first I've heard about this chat though, maybe next time we could get a bit more advance notice?

@Antedeluvian: Mad Magazine used to have these little doodles on the margins of the page...

I used to love Mad Magazine when I was a teenager -- when I've seen it more recently it just doesn't seem as funny as it used to -- is this just me growing old, or has the humor in the magazine gone down-hill?

Carry a rolled-up New York Times under your arm and a Carnation in your button hole so we recognize you! :-)

Mad Magazine used to have these little doodles on the margins of the page (maybe they still do). I still remember one where there is a Scotsman in full regalia with kilt and sporran saying on the telephone "I'll be the one wearing a carnation!"

@Max: Heres some food for thought and discussion, should OEM's be required to advise that their is a bug in their software. I had a long career as a user of electronic fire alarms (Safety Critical?) and had a hard job getting OEM's to tell me when they had an upgrade for thier systems due to a software problem.
