    Thomas Watson Sr., the first charismatic CEO of IBM, encouraged social conformity in his firm because he thought it made his sales force more effective. This column uses Watsonpsilas framing to examine modern arrangements outside of large firms. As it turns out, innovation happens at the edges of marketwide structures and at the edges of conventional society. View full abstract»

    The Supreme Court has decided, for the first time in many years, to hear arguments in a patent licensing case. The dispute involves whether the "exhaustion doctrine"-the rule that a patentee's or licensee's sale of a product "exhausts" patent rights over the sold product-is still alive and kicking. LG Electronics bought a patent portfolio from Wang Labs and began trying to enforce it. LG negotiate... View full abstract»

    Today, with the increasing popularity of multicore processors, one approach to optimizing the processor's performance is to reduce the execution times of individual applications running on each core by designing and implementing more powerful cores. Another approach, which is the polar opposite of the first, optimizes the processor's performance by running a larger number of applications on a corr... View full abstract»

    How can we ensure that platform hardware, firmware, and software work in concert to withstand rapidly evolving security threats? Architectural innovations bring performance gains but can also create new security vulnerabilities. In this panel discussion, from the 2007 workshop on Computer Architecture Research directions, we assess the current state of security and discuss possible routes toward t... View full abstract»

    One of the primary concerns for microprocessor designers has always been balancing power and thermal management while minimizing performance loss. rather than generate solutions to this dilemma, the advent of multicore chips has raised a host of new challenges. this discussion with Pradip Bose and Kanad Ghose, excerpted from a 2007 Card Workshop Panel, explores the future of low-power design and t...

    A successful collaborative IP-development session requires careful planning and preparation. Whether or not you come out with some good intellectual property depends on the guest list, mind-sets, and moods, but also on location, food, music, and party favors. Emma guides us, just as Martha Stewart would, in how to plan a formal session; next issue's column will tackle what happens once the guests ... View full abstract»
