I've said it before, and I'll say it again. It's a funny old world sometimes, isn't it? For the past couple of months, I've been waffling away about my Pedagogical and Phantasmagorical Inamorata Prognostication Engine and my Phrankly Phenomenal Ultra-Macho Prognostication Engine, along with associated topics like illuminating antique vacuum tubes using tri-colored LEDs and the Universal Screw-Block Proto-Shield System for Arduino designed by my chum Duane Benson.
I just performed a Google Image Search for "Prognostication Engine." I wasn't expecting to see much, but there were the images from my blogs in all their glory.
But that's not what I wanted to talk about here. I've received so much feedback about my Prognostication Engine projects that I've been asked to give a talk about them at the EE Live! 2014 Conference and Exhibition. As you might expect, this isn't going to be just any old talk. We'll have an internationally renowned bacon chef serving that ambrosia of delight. Yes, of course I'm talking about bacon. And what goes well with bacon? Beer, of course.
The bottom line is that I will doing what I enjoy the most -- talking about myself -- while we all munch on bacon and quaff beer. For the younger engineers, quaffing is similar to regular drinking, except it's a tad more enthusiastic, and you tend to spill more down your chest.
Bacon, beer, and prognostication engines at EE Live!
What do you mean? Of course, I'm not joking. Do I look like the sort of man who would trivialize something as important as bacon and beer? Click here to bounce over to the appropriate entry in the EE Live! Schedule builder and see for yourself.
I can hear my mother now: "For this, we sent you to college?" Well, I think she should be proud of me. How many presentations have you attended where bacon and beer were served? I like to think I'm setting the standard for others to follow. What do you think?
Don't forget that EE Live! 2014 All Access passes and Engineering Summits passes are still available at the conference’s official site with discounted Advance pricing. Make sure to follow updates about EE Live!’s other talks, programs, and announcements on its social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+.
