Embedded is cool (and getting even cooler)

By Paul Anderson When people ask me what I do, I never know how to answer the question. Most people state their occupation. But, does that define what we do?

Before the success of open source in server space, there were really only two choices: Run an operating system and applications developed and maintained by a hardware manufacturer, or choose one of only a few…
