theodp writes "In its College Issue, the NYT Magazine profiles tuition-free Olin College, which is building a different breed of engineer, stressing creativity, teamwork and entrepreneurship — and, in no small part, courage. But questions remain as to whether the industry is ready for the freethinking products of Olin, and vice versa — few of the class of 2006 are going on to grad study in engineering or jobs in the field."

You will be dearly Missed out at TI, where I caught a passing glance of you. It is out there where your legacy will live on forever. The posters and banners displaying your legacy will always be there. No one knows what will become of your office where you encouraged so many young engineers. But I can only hope that something good will become of it.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
