  1. I thought his talk was cause for some real optimism. With longer development cycles, and no 2X faster hardware to count on every 12-18 months, it makes sense to write more optimal and quality code. This is how it should be done anyway! Sloppy code serves no one well. Longer hardware life cycles mean we can put more effort into quality hardware designs which can be used for five or ten years instead of discarded every two or three. This can have a hugely positive impact on the planet as a whole: less tech waste and more tech to share with those who need it. As engineers there is a lot we can do to repair/reuse/recycle. Putting my $$ where my mouth is, I walked out of the keynote resolved to put a WD Black 2 dual SSD/HDD and a new battery into my 3-year-old W510 notebook, to get another 2-3 years out of it. Check out Project Ara (speculative at this point but I found the synchronicity with Bunnie’s talk interesting) for the Google modular cell phone which could be upgraded over a much longer lifetime. Interesting times! Also, BTW, if the IoT is such a big deal why does ESC (eeLive) keep shrinking?
