    For Dave House. I have no comment about the podcast. It’s just standard “Rah Rah Rah” stuff. But I thought I’d mention…

    I used to work at Intel too. 1981 till I retired in -uhm, I think it was ’98 or ’99. I worked in Chandler, in Apps, supporting the 8051. I wrote an app note about electrically noisy environments. You sent me a nice letter complimenting my work. I didn’t know you were a fellow “Tute” as they used to call us. I graduated from The Tech in ’61, in E.E. If I had known you also were a Tute too I would certainly have written back.

    Anyway, nice to hear where you’re at these days.

    In looking at this, I found an interesting connection!
    I graduated with Tom Williamson, and knew him well.

    When Dave House graduated, his first job was with Raytheon. I was his Section Manager.

    My youngest son was recently promoted to Engineering Fellow at Intel-Oregon.

    My regards to two old friends!
