Photo gallery: Engineering's messiest desks

Can an engineer, who had a messy desk, keep one clean after a corporate move? Will that affect his or her innovation?

Hi Frank, after reviewing these 10 twits, 140 characters is still worthless blather.

Wow, elPresidente-- when did Jeri pee in your Wheaties? I've worked on several commercial projects with Jeri over the years (she designed an audio/video ASIC for an arcade game we produced and hardware for Rapport Inc's "KiloCore" processors) and regardless of if she did her chair time at university or not she's one hell of hardware designer. She's also very creative and not afraid to just try stuff that other more "professional" engineers dismiss as impossible or impractical. Not a lot of EE's that I know have fabbed their own transistors and IC's, or refurbished and run their own SEM in the garage. ...and the first time I visited her (when she was still down here in Oregon) she had a small block V8 partially disassembled on her living room floor with Commodore Amiga custom ASIC schematics (gate level) spread out on top of it. That's a worthy trade for a couple terms of non-major electives in my book. Check out the augmented reality stuff she's doing with Cast AR and get back to me with why someone with her practical resume needs to go spend four years sitting through 50+ credits of "Social Processes & Institutions", "Science, Technology, and Society", and "Western Culture". They'd just end up having her be the guest lecturer half the time anyway...

I agree! It is such an insult to all the university prof and PhD students who can't even solder or put together a simple circuit. Maybe they will actually wake up and realize that just doing math on the blackboard is useless without the practical knowledge of being able to build something, the mark of a true engineer!

"To call her an EE, or to group her among EEs is an insult to the EEs that actually put in the hard work to get their degrees." Sure it's because what she has achieved is an "insult" to the corporate academia.

Cabling done correctly first time ! Our engineers are fully trained in the art of cabling and pay great attention to get this process correct for businesses in London and in our data centre. Take a look at a few examples of our work! another to follow on twitter @SpeedsterIT http://www.speedster-it.com/server-roomsdata-centers/cabling-done-correctly-first-time/

Title says "Electrical engineers" - did you miss that in your feminazi rage? Her accomplishments are irrelevant to that filter - she didn't have the resolve to get her EE. She dropped out. She ran a computer store. A clerk is not an EE, despite her hobbyist accomplishments and work on "interesting stuff". So do some high school kids. To call her an EE, or to group her among EEs is an insult to the EEs that actually put in the hard work to get their degrees. She's a dropout hobbyist/hacker that is a great self promoter. Nothing more.

Yes, God knows that self-taught dropouts have amounted to nothing in the world of cutting edge technology. And real EEs certainly don't have interests beyond work. She's worked on some interesting stuff, and notably, keynoted at ESC a couple of years ago. I was thrilled to see just a little bit of diversity in the list. And not just the gender or race kind of diversity, but a refreshing diversity in approach to life, project choice and problem-solving.

"Electrical engineers" I should follow? According to Wikipedia, Ellsworth seems to be an excellent self-promoter who dropped out of high school, then dropped out of a community college after a year. Running a computer store chain and playing in your basement does not make you an electrical engineer - your listing of her as one is an insult to those of us who put in the hard work to become one...we weren't "dropouts". And why would I follow this teeniebopper drivel? Jeri Ellsworth Jeri Ellsworth ?@jeriellsworth 8h I'm practicing my Audrey 1 voice(Not Audrey2). #littleshopofhorror Jeri Ellsworth Jeri Ellsworth ?@jeriellsworth 8h Watching Little Shop of Horrors(80's version).

I am not that heavily into analog but I always followed Bob Pease! I miss his wit and broad interests, some of his replies were priceless.
