I would go with "a shush of librarians".  This is from the old days when libraries were deadly quiet and anyone who made a noise could expect a "shush!" and an angry look from the nearest librarian.

I would go with "an exaggeration of salesmen".  This is borrowed from the classic joke with the punch-line: "Oh, you know how those [IBM] salesmen always exaggerate."

Thanks!  I'm glad there are others who feel the same way about BGAs.

How about:

A swindling of salesmen (especially those of used cars!)

a bevy of beauty therapists

a galaxy of astronomers

a sparkling of jewellers

A coat of painters

a ring of jewellers

a shelf of grocers

a hirsuteness of barbers

a hearing of audiologists

A refraction of opticians

an array of programmers

a classification of librarians

an attribution of authors

a reference of technical writers

and last but not least
A competence of engineers
You could maybe use "excellence" as well - it has better alliteration but doesn't have the same ring to it...

@Max: "Betajet also told us that "horripilation" is another name for goose bumps or goose flesh, but he didn't take this any further."



Actually his suggestion was in his subject line: "A Horripilation of Ball Grid Arrays"

Which I would agree with!

I was going to suggest a sheet of musicians, but none of them are playing anything (one hopes :-)  and a sheet of singers does not have the same ring to it (even though it alliterates better)...

My vote would go to Garcia's: "an entanglement of quantum physicists"

Here's two that may have been directed toward me over the years:

A clumsy of geeks

A nnoying of nerds

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.
