ESC is near
The Embedded Systems Conference, Silicon Valley, is less than a week away and Screaming Circuits  will be there in booth 827. I've been getting prepped all week (well, actually a lot longer than just all week) and that drives me a little crazy.
I ran across this diagram on XKCD  that does a good job of explaining what value I get out of going to the ESC show. And, it conveniently points out the location of our booth.
Given that I'm posting this on my work blog, I feel compelled to include the warning that XKCD  has on their website. "Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)" And the note that he licenses his work under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License. 
I hope to see all of you there. Yes. ALL of you.
No. This is not the algorithm either. Not even close.
