With regard to the caption for this photo -- one thing that comes to mind is the sound of someone screaming "Arrggghhhh!"

This may not be EE Times-related, but I tried parachuting in my youth, and that's pretty much the sound I made while I was doing it :-)

Good one ... but how about "Some people will do anything to get their video in the cloud!"

LOL ... And if I called my wife and said something equivalent, her immediate response would be "Why?" and I'd say "I said ther'e no time to explain!" and she woudl reply "Why not?" .... and so it would go until I hit the ground :-)

I agree -- this is a mind-blowing picture -- but I'm glad I'm not the person in it :-)

What?  After viewing that PowerPoint presentation I would never take that trip.  Looks very educational, but too dangerous for my taste.  I hope everyone can swim.

I know what you mean... for myself, I would be terified that the top of the cliff would break away ... but even a strong gust of wind could ruin your day :-)

@Charles, Max....I don't mind heights and would go and stand on that boulder.  I might even throw myself off with a parachute,   But I would NOT walk across that rope!

I had to leave the chat early, but one thing caught my eye when I went back and read through it all:

"@Caleb: I kind of think the term IoT will just go away.

I wish ... but I disagree ... once a "meme" has taken hold and started breeding ... it's %^&^ difficult to stop"

 

Remember when "Office Automation" was the rage that was going to take over the world? Also, "Desktop Publishing"? I haven't heard either of those in a long time

 

It is difficult for labels like this to go away, but "IoT" is pretty awkward in my opinion. But, I don't have any suggested replacements to offer up.
