NO RATINGS
There's something fascinating that overcomes you when visiting this yearly engineeing-fest, the sense of calmness. Whether on the show floor among instruments, robots and smart partners, or at keynotes, summits or seminars, NI2012, the National Instruments convention, is like no other in settling your fears of the outside world. For four days in the usual three-digit heat (this year it came close, but no ringer) some 1600 engineers and scientists gather to make hay of Labview's latest capabilities in graphically exploiting control and measurement of that world outside the convention center while inside three days of keynotes are followed by demos of instruments trying to conquer the South Pole or advance cold fusion. When the focus is on engineering, neither the heat or terrorist acts keep the initiated away. It's the positive side of humanity that both company founders Truchard and Kosovsky keep emphasizing, besides keeping NI on its innovative tracks since its inception 34 years ago: http://www.ni.com/company/corporate-responsibility/planetni/
