Call me a skeptic, Rich, but I'm still doubtful about her knowledge of engineering. Having said that, I admit I'd really like to see the keynote.

Well, she has a degree in neuroscience, and turned down offers to attend Hardvard and Yale, so I'm guessing she can hold her own in a conversion amongst engineers.

I have to admit I've never watched the show, Liz, but I did think the same thing as you: What could she say about design to 2,000 engineers? I have a feeling, though, that the keynote speech will have an overflow crowd wanting to see her.

Rain vs snow

Rich, I found your comments about rain funny. In the very wet California redwood forest where moss grows on plastic (this is not a joke) we run an industrial-strength dehumidifier in the winter. Average annual rainfall in my area is a bit higher than Portland, so if we went outside only when it's sunny, we'd turn into couch potatoes (or maybe trees). I guess it depends on what we're used to. When I went to Idaho for Thanksgiving many years ago, I was amazed that people were walking around outside in the snow and temperatures below freezing.

Hmmm...so what will an actress on a TV show have to say that's relevant to design, I wonder?? Hopefully she will be well-prepared! Funny thing about that show...one of my friends here, who is a German Web designer, also is a die-hard fan. So I suppose it translates across languages if you speak "computer geek." ;)

Autodesk

I remember when Silicon Graphics was the darling of CGI in movies. Now they're gone and Autodesk has become the darling. Maybe there's a parallel to the computing industry in general: Software today; hardware yesterday.

Latest Analysis
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
This consulting firm has put together a report detailing the growing biomimicry design field in the US and around the world, from naturally bacteria-repelling surfaces to keratin-inspired polymers.
Here's a list of engineering and tech jobs ranked by outlook, work environment, stress, and income.
