If I may indulge my personal side for a second, congratulations to my father for being named one of Fortune Magazine's top 24 "disruptive innovators"! Since childhood, I've looked up to the passion, precision, integrity and imagination he brought to solving problems of all sizes -- and I continue to be amazed at both the magnitude and relevance of the problems he chooses to tackle today (at age 63, no less!) Needless to say, his approach to engineering (among many other things) has influenced me enormously, and I'm both proud and inspired.
(I could go on at length, but I'll save him the embarrassment ;-)
