@SuperSkeptic: Unfortunately, she often omitted one critical element: turning the burner OFF before the water all boiled away!

Many years ago, I had just started dating someone in England. She had two young daughters who were 7 and 9 at the time. One day I was invited round to supper -- the youngest daughter stuck her head thriough the door and said "we're going to play with the kids next door" -- her mom replied "how will you know when your supper's ready?" and the kid immediately responded "we'll smell it burning" LOL

...was "barbecuing" vegetables long before the current trend.  She used to put them in a saucepan, add some water, and turn on the burner.  This worked particularly well with cruciferous veggies like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.  Unfortunately, she often omitted one critical element: turning the burner OFF before the water all boiled away!  Being a frugal household, we were expected to consume them regardless.... all the while "enjoying" the aroma concentrated in our small eat-in kitchen.

@mhrackin: See the resemblance???

I don't know why, but that little figurine makes me happy -- I want one for my desk (it could hang out with my "Big Bang Theory" bobble heads :-)

@max: "...Little Green Sprout":

Well, that sounds like a perfect description of the typical Brussels one.... IIRC, his head bore a strong resemblence to one!

@mhrackin: ...wasn't the Jolly Green Giant's sidekick a little "kid" vegetable named "Sprout"?

I think his full name was "Little Green Sprout"

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.
