@rentawatch: We are hoping they are going to need many ankh-morpork citizens to make Unseen Academicals.

Is this still going ahead?

I was lucky enough to be an extra on Colour of Magic and quite a few friends were in Going Postal. We are hoping they are going to need many ankh-morpork citizens to make Unseen Academicals. If you want to send me an email, I will let you know what comes up like that from time to time. Kris

I would LOVE to see Good Omens -- and also The Watch -- I really loved the interpretation of "Going Postal"

I'm such a huge Discworld fan that I go to the conventions in UK, USA, Ireland, Germany and Netherlands. Even worse (or better) I moved to Wincanton in Somerset which is formally twinned with Ankh-Morpork and has the world's only REAL as opposed to online shop, dedicated to Discworld and Terry's works. Check out Discworld Emporium and Hogswatch 2012 on facebook if you want to know more. If you are ever in the UK I can let you know what meetings are happening while you are here and just after July 4th 2013, the 3rd US Discworld Convention is taking place in Baltimore :) I saw the Ankh-Morpork map on Saturday and I heard some encouraging snippets about the 4 part Good Omens being made and also about possible cast members for The Watch (CSI Ankh-Morpork very unofficially!)

Near as I can tell, it's because it matches the long-form way of writing dates: "June 10, 2011" etc. I use YYYY.MM.DD(.HH.MM.SS)myself, since it makes chronological and alphabetical orders match.

@MindTech: "The Night Watch will be getting its own BBC-made TV show." Really? That's WONDERFUL news (so long as they do a good job of it) ... I cannot wait...

I'm a huge Discworld fan also. While I love them all, the Watch and Susan Death series are my favourites. I'm working my way through all of them in audiobook form on my daily commute, and I find that it's been long enough that I am re-experiencing them for the first time. Nigel Planar is also a fantastic reader. I also loved the Discworld adventure games (old DOS games that they were), with Rincewind voiced by the inestimable Eric Idle. The newer made-for-tv Discworld movies have also been great hits, and I hear that the Night Watch will be getting its own BBC-made TV show. So much Discworld!

@David: But "MM/DD/YYYY is just weird." I agree -- so why did the Americans standardize on it ... there must have been some reason...

YYYYMMDD order is the most sensible order for many purposes, and is the ISO standard. In particular, it means that numerical, alphabetical and chronological ordering is always the same. DD/MM/YYYY order is also logical, and is natural in that it gives the most changeable detail first (just as we do with things like names and addresses, at least in the western world). But MM/DD/YYYY is just weird.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
