    Where There's Smoke, There's fire in the Belly of an Aspiring Engineer
    Published. April 2, 2012

    Humans learn with their hands and, it turns out, electrical engineers are humans.  Most of us fondly recall "experiments" we did that made electrical engineering our destiny.  But what of the current generation?  Have apps deadened the EE in the way video killed the radio star?  I am happy to report that the answer, for one future EEs at least, is a resounding "power up!"For some strange reason, my oldest son thinks EE is a great career path.  Maybe its...

    Should you launch at a conference?
    Published. February 21, 2012

    Should you launch at Launch? (Or TechCrunch Disrupt? Or Demo? They’re all pretty similar). This year I launched two major new products at conferences: Careers 2.0 and Trello, and both times, it was totally worth it. First, a little background. There are three popular conferences where you can launch new products: Launch, TechCrunch Disrupt, and Demo. They all work the same way: You apply. If you have a half-decent product that is genuinely new, you’re likely to get a spot. That said,...
