in news though, I got a 91% (!) on my signal processing test! I just sort of expect to fail the first round of tests, since that's what my first few semesters of grad school were like. Maybe I'm learning the system. This means I deserve a break. today.
but anyway, regarding embedded systems:
What will we do if Moore's Law ceases to apply?
OHMIGOD freak out!
Stop using computers
Listen to our engineering professors ramble on about how amazing something else is
Forget about Moore altogether
Forget about IBM altogether*
Stop quadrupling application requirements every 18-24 months
Make it fuzzier, so it still applies
Spread the word of Spacefem's Law**
Have an "end of Moore's Law" party*
* if you already did, you don't have to chose this option
** Spacefem's Law: The best way to slow IC technology progress to a crawl is to get engineers to waste time talking about Moore's Law all the time
update: a blip on wikipedia that I will start to call "mikkalai's law": the degree of twistedness of various popular formulations of Moore's law doubles every 18 months
