Salute all engineers

RTA Newsletter Editor Dr John Grange will, from next month, no longer make disparaging comments about nerdy, geeky engineers. They are my heroes in this age of irrelevant, narcissistic information overload. In a recent EE Times survey of 285 engineers, 85% reported that they don’t use Twitter. More than half indicated that the statement “I don’t really care what you had for breakfast,” best sums up their feelings about it; others characterized it as “a ridiculous waste of time and electrons” or expressed the strong desire for it to simply “go away”. Details via: www.eetimes.com/news/semi/showArticle.jhtml;jsessionid=CL4SECRQDUIBTQE1GHOSKHWATMY32JVN?articleID=225700747. A sound set of views or is the Editor merely being a 50+ year old ranting Luddite ignoring a valuable social media communication mechanism?
