Been very busy, but no excuse not to keep blogging. 

Anyhoo, here is a blog post I wrote for the Industrial Control DesignLine.  The Thomas K. Mattingley keynote address at the Embedded Systems Conference really brought back the feeling of excitement that was present during the space race.  Will there be events that will capture the imagination of the future generations of engineers in North America?  Or will layoffs, outsourcing, and the downturn keep them out of the profession?  We shall see.
