Thinking Digitally

  • Author: Tom Perkins, Senior Technical Editor

While I recently sat in my dentist’s chair during a long procedure, he mentioned that his grand children “think digitally.” Unfortunately, when your mouth is propped open, communication tends to be one-way, so I don’t know exactly where he was going with his thought. By the time I could speak coherently, he was ready for his next patient and I could only offer, “see you in two weeks.” By the time you read this, I might get an explanation about digital grandchildren and then report back in a future issue. My dentist’s comment reminded me of the reality that our communications techniques and almost everything associated with RF and microwaves are becoming digital.
