Funny how the world works. I've heard about the movie "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" all over the place, but until your article, I hadn't heard about this movie. I'd much rather see something real about Lincoln (I hope this one has a decent amount of accuracy) than fiction about him hunting vampires. It might have something to do with the fact that I have teenagers around the house and, while I think they'd like to see this one, vampires and zombies are much funner to talk about at their age.

This one is by Steven Spielberg of Schindler's List fame and other great movies, both fiction and non-fiction; he tends to stay on the hisorical accurate side of the line. See interview here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPoLT0oYv6I

Duane, Spielberg's "Lincoln" focuses specifically on Abe's efforts to push through the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that ended slavery. Hence, the film relies on great writing, acting and substance rather than special effects. Your teenagers should see both films.

I find conspiracy theories entertaining, but don't believe most of them. I know some guys who have lots of answers for questions you didn't know you were supposed to ask, who could talk for a long time about the theory of how entertainment like the Lincoln vampire movie are supposed to diminish and cut down great people. I thought the vampire movie was a funny idea. Bizare, but funny. I'm waiting for it to hit cable. But will go pay to see the current one. The current movie has to be making some people's blood boil. A friend recently posted a comment on-line about the exceptionalism of Lincoln and someone else just came unglued about it. The second commentator went on and on about how Lincoln wasn't exceptional. I didn't know there was a body of thought like that. One man's hero is another man's evil.

I was raised in the North and, like you, I never knew that there was even a question about Lincoln's greatness. Then I moved south of the Mason-Dixon line nd learned that there was, in fact, quite a lot of it. Their arguments are compelling. Lincoln remains a divisive character in our history and the debate rages on.

Lincoln viewed America as "the last best hope on Earth...." He preserved that idea, then set in motion the actions and events that ended human slavery. Those two accomplishments speak for themselves.

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.
