@Duane: I read many Heinlein books back in the day, but I don't recognise that one.

It was a short story in a larger book...

The Disappearing Spoon is the best book I've read in a few years. My daughter devoured it as well.

I read many Heinlein books back in the day, but I don't recognise that one.

@Steve: Do you think it's possible there may be metal robots (As opposed to "meat" robots) at EELive breakfast in 2016?

Well, it all depends if Duane has finished his Robot Avatar by then (he's promissed to make one for me also, so we could have two there).

      If so, what will you serve them?

Hopefully, they will be serving us LOL

I ordered In Search of Time. I'll get The Disappearing Spoon next and others after that. Or, I'll get in my time machine and use overlapping time to order them simultaneousl...

[Duane #2 here - I've already ordered and read The Disappearing Spoon]

[Duane #3 here - Dang. I messed with the space-time continuum and in this instantiation of me, I don't have a job and can't afford books.]

Hi Max,

Great list of books, by the way!

Do you think it's possible there may be metal robots (As opposed to "meat" robots) at EELive breakfast in 2016? If so, what will you serve them?

By some strange quirk of fate, Duane Benson just introduced me to a relevant XKCD Cartoon (first read the cartood dialog, and then read the caption under the cartoon)

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.
