Jim's pranks (& Bob's)
@Doug - guys like Williams and Pease led the way in showing us how a job can become not only interesting (by having real fun while you work), but also how the job can be a lifestyle - again, because they knew how to put real joy into what they did for a living.

Jim
Never met Jim, but from how Bob Pease talked about him, I see he was always a thinker and one could rarely get away with any pranks that Jim would later have a good come back.

If your interest is less in applications of analog technology than other problems, and you want to find out what’s happening in real analog, here's where you should be.
When it comes to this month’s ISSCC show, there are plenty of sections dedicated to solving issues with integrated analog technology. Here, our blogger looks at the sessions that offer new insight to difficult problems.
The International Solid State Circuits Conference kicks off February 9. While the mass media will focus on the biggest memory, faster processor, and smallest geometries reported, I prefer to look at the analog stuff.
Once semiconductor companies master the fabrication of micro-electromechanical systems (which they have), the next step is to master nano-electromechanical systems (which they are starting to).
A comparison of integrating large amounts of analog functionality onto a chip with simply using smaller individual analog function blocks. Which is better, cheaper, or easier?
