Thought Leadership 

-       More and more processing power of computers are being put into the smaller and smaller devices and bringing greater number of people into contact with each other. 

-       Revolutionary periods for personal computing -the PC, cell phone, PDA, and MP3 player- are all direct results of integrating more processing power into a smaller chip space.

-       A deep understanding of hardware (computer architecture) and a good software skill (how to program them) will be crucial skills for continued success in the field.   

-       More and more integration of different components into smaller chip space necessitates evolving existing process and learning new ways to accomplish old tasks.

-       A willingness to do thing different from the established method will help future developments in technology.
