That's really not a bad idea -- I'm a bit strapped for time at the moment, but sometime in the next week I will show my backpack on a table with everything taken out and detailed ... and I'll capture it in a blog... ...then if others want to do the same, they can send me a photo and associated description and I'll do a series of follow-up blogs ... so maybe we can start with you... :-)

I think that you should start a contest to see who takes the backpack with the largest variety of stuff (electronic equipment, test tools, adapters, etc.) through security. Contestants should submit pictures detailing everything they have in their bag. On average I have at least two flights a month (most of them internationally) and I carry a civilian version of pack that Camelbak made for the US military loaded with about 15Kg of stuff. Unfortunately, I don't have room for a cat in my bag, so you should see how much fun I have going through security :)

Whose cat was it? Just a stray you happened to run across on your travels? :-)

@Mike- The reason you got to bypass security should be obvious- They didn't have a CAT scanner!

Easiest time I have ever had going thru security was when I was carrying a cat. I dropped my bag off at the scanner and didn't remove my ham handheld radio that was on my belt, my phone in my pocket nor any of the other things in my pockets, I didn't even go thru the scanners. Security waved me to the side of the scanners and they all gathered around and petted the cat then they proceeded to swab me then they swabbed the cat and then a bunch of cute TSA girls came by asking the cats name and then they all proceeded to pet the cat and make it purr even louder than it was when all this started. Portland Oregon has some cute TSA girls as does Phoenix Sky harbor. And that was it for me no stress a bunch of nice people for the first time ever.

I've never seen that kind of watch before! Does it do anything special, or is it just cool because it's retro...?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
