It's a very good idea to create a reference website as more and more digital
designers get
involved in SI issues. And it's also great for a FAQ database maintained by
experts out
there. I'm new to SI and often get confused when following up the discussion on
SI-list because
there were so many different opinions even on some basic issues.

Istvan, could you give us a list of those SI links before someone create a
reference website?
I'm in China and as I know there're many engineers working on SI issues in
China. Most of them
can only get resources/references on SI through Web just like me.

Still, some sort of bigger database to look up threads/ links. topics would
be useful, and we have to appreciate the framework that Andrew created. On
the other hand, as Mitch pointed out recently, there are several good
websites already on different aspects of signal integrity. Mitch's list is
just the tip of the iceberg, there are many others out there. These
websites obviously reflect their creator's opinions and views, exactly as
the FAQ sections would reflect their moderator's view.

My suggestion is to create a reference website, which intead of inviting
contributions/questions specifically for the FAQ, aimes to
reference/organize the available links out on the web, including the
threads of the SI-list. It is, of course, still subjective, so I would keep
the 'policing' rules at a
minimum, since as we know, there is no stupid question, only stupid answers.
To undertake such an organizing job is also a huge task, because web links
come and go by the minute. One example may be what started out as the
FibreChannel home page from Schelto van Dorn http://www.schelto.com/.
