The Wharton School recently published an article that examines how the youngest full professor at Wharton got that way. Adam Grant's secret is to publish 5 to 10 papers a year. A book that gets on the New York Times best seller list helps as well. The article features an excerpt from the bo......

My aim is to boost your value in only twenty minutes a day. That is the amount of time that commercials take in a one-hour television program. So instead of advancing forward with the DVR or going to the fridge because that food commercial triggered your hunger to go get a snack, here’s the ......

My first job fresh from college was testing and debugging control loading systems on flight simulators for 747 and the "new" 767 airliners. In the late 1970s, the control loop that simulated the feel of the primary flight surfaces, and had to respond instantaneously to pilot inputs, ......

Amid a huge number of recent news stories about systems getting hacked I read several in the area of IoT about Zigbee getting hacked, Chrysler getting hacked, and Tesla getting both hacked and fixed. Granted, part of the rush came from the recent DEFCON conference in Las Vegas, but such stories st......

Here is my proposed definition of firmware:   ‘Firmware is the art of designing software that successfully controls and/or monitors the physical and natural world through electronics.’   It’s not your father’s definition is it? But I would argue the definit......

We usually hear the word “freedom” in relation to Free Software and Open Source Software (FOSS). Actually, most use of the word comes from the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and its founder, Richard M. Stallman, repeating the term over and over[Note 1], until the word is almost de......

Keeping a record of the design progress, measured results, decisions made, and calculations performed are all part of the job description for any engineer. There are many aspects to any project, and for a project involving microcontrollers and/or programmable logic, this is compounded by programs ......

Keeping the team motivated and enthusiastic about an entrepreneurial company could be the difference between success and failure. It is also an aspect of the job for a founding CEO that can be puzzling. It seems like every high-tech executive I talk to has the same lack of appreciation for &quo......

In business school, they use case studies to see what clicks and what doesn't. In law school, they study old court arguments. But it's not often that an engineering school uses failure as a teaching tool.   I had this point brought home to me when speaking with Dave Nadler, a consul......

I never met Richard Feynman but I am glad to say that I played a small role in preserving what he had to say, especially stories about events in his past. I first encountered Feynman’s physics books when I was in college in the late ‘60s. A picture in the forward of the book showed Fey......
