Mentor Battles Icahn, Pinckney's Rising Star and Mouse Neurons

In my Fish Fry this week, I dig into the details surrounding the recent battle between investment banker Carl Icahn and Mentor Graphics, explore the unique life story of Internet start-up star Tom Pinckney and look into a new biomedical research that utilizes mouse neurons and semiconductor tubes.  Also this week, I give viewers a chance to win a brand new nerdy giveaway courtesy of Microchip Technology.

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week – as long as you’re watching.
