Could you figure out the answer? To my frustration, I couldn't, without peeking at a few of the comments. It makes perfect sense now. Not a bad puzzle!

I've read Nick's newsletter for a long time and recommended it, his web site, and his book to many people. What I like is that much of it is more sensible and less trite than so many of the job-seeking rules of thumb that you read. I don't agree with him 100%, and some of his advice seems hard to implement, such as refusing to disclose your current salary. But, he has good reasons and it's all worthy of your consideration.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and wish you interesting projects and prosperity in 2011!

Past history is crystal clear and his description spot on. His assessment of current and future value-add is plausible and thought provoking. Sounds dire for many silicon-centric companies, though. Will you be a survivor? What does it say for the fortunes of the EDA industry? His answer seems to be focus on system/software, complemented by C-based hardware design.
