I've been on vacation, and didn't notice until today the sad news that Bob Pease has passed away. I only met Bob in person once (at a seminar in Norway back in 2000), but I've been an avid reader of his columns and books over the years, and thought it interesting that we might become colleagues once the TI-National acqusition closes. Unfortunately, that was not to be.
This sad occasion has made me think about how older engineers (I'm 35, BTW), through generously sharing their time and knowledge, serve as mentors and role models to those younger. Even in a rapidly changing field like high tech, there is still a lot to learn from those who've gone before us. As we become older and wiser ourselves, let's also make sure to follow Bob's example and be as generous with our time and knowledge as he was with his.
