Wine Wi-Fi Finds Fine Vines

Winemaking is an occupation steeped in tradition, to mix my metaphors. Winery websites feature richly sepia-toned photos of rugged Old World types squeezing the soil through their hands, gazing at grape clusters, and extolling their great-great-grandfathers’ foresight in planting head-trained Zinfandel vines with original rootstock in the rich alluvial soil of Napa Valley. It’s enough to drive you to drink.

Also this week, we investigate a new technology created … Read More → "Constructing A Better Future: Building a Responsible Society through Edge Processing and Bricks for Energy Storage"

Plotting a Course to Functional Safety

There are many roads to prosperity, but one must be taken. Inaction leads nowhere. – Robert Zoellick

Security is not implemented overnight. Standards don’t create themselves. And our design lives won’t get easier if security and standards aren’t addressed at every step of the game. In this week’s podcast, Brent Sherman (Intel), Adam Sherer (Cadence) and I chat about the challenges of … Read More → "Plotting a Course to Functional Safety"
