Great tag line: Ada is ready when you are. We've been tossing around slogans for a while, and this is the best one yet. Marsha Roepe -----Original Message----- From: S. Ron Oliver [mailto:[log in to unmask]] Sent: Saturday, February 03, 2001 10:18 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Ada and Embedded Systems Hi folks, I just read the article about (by?) Joyce Tokar in the latest DDC-I Online News. It is available at http://www.ddci.com/news/news_vol2num1.html Naturally most of us know most of what Joyce has to say there. However, the article is well-written in terms that many "lay people" would be able to understand. It would be nice if someone would take that material, refine it somewhat (i.e. revise it from being an "interview" to straight prose), augment it some, and try to get it into magazines like ESP, EDN, EE Times, etc., etc. Maybe even CACM? Ian Sommerville, and his colleagues, in particular, should read the DDC-I article. sro S.
