Great point to Cremonesi's from STMicrolectronics. His energy and vision made the keynote at DAC very effective and successful.

Some good journalism. Maybe a few too many excuses.
I missed DAC this year, so I appreciated the
article greatly. One thing missing was an analysis of
the apparently declining attendance. Can (or should) this
be reversed? Do we need big meetings, live, in
the shadowy world of the living web?
I really don't think the heat wave was a concern to those
meeting in air-conditioned meeting rooms, or travelling
in air-conditioned trains. What did it add?
And, so far as the violence in the Middle East is concerned,
why bother with it in a DAC opinion article?
Unending war has been a way of life in those parts for centuries;
it's described in the Bible back to about 1000 BC; so, why should
it be considered newsworthy? The number of active participants
so far has been less than this year's DAC attendance. Let them be.
One side thinks it's still 800 BC; the other, 800 AD. They'll just
continue to cancel to a big ZERO, peacewise, until they learn better.
The concern expressed in the DAC article did nothing to help anyone
and should be taken for granted as shared by any civilized person.

Peggy,
I disagree with one of your comments. Now is a great time for females who are interested in IC/EDA industry. Semiconductor companies love to hire females. I've been on recruiting visits ... e.g., with Bill Joyner's SRC group ... and I see IC companies really favoring female engineers. (I tried to avoid other jargon ... like 'jump all over them'...) I agree with this approach.
I think the issue (which industry can also help with) is ensuring females are studying semiconductor & EDA areas at university as an undergraduate.
Again, for females who want to work in IC industry/EDA -- now is a great time.
I'm a normal engineer ... not recruiter or anthing else.
Regards,
Phil Nigh

Peggy as usual gives us the whole gambit, a mixture of emotional frustration at the world in general through knowledgeable EDA stuff. I enjoyed reading it, finding it a bit Kafka-ish, surreal and real as well as contradictiory at times, with a lot of weary disappointment thrown in. The lack of women in the EDA field is a major irritant for her, but no suggestions for how to correct, if possible, provided. I agree about the 'junk' consumer products, too many, and have often thought about what could replace them and profitably employ enough folk, and be profitable for investment, but nothing is obvious. ESL and SystemVerilog are still floundering, although the hype spewing forth assures us that's not the case. Keep plugging along Peggy and best wishes for better events.
