I've had a few days to let the events of EECI2011 sink in and I have to admit that I don't regret that the shit storm I created happened. It has people talking about issues that are clearly roiling beneath the surface in our industry. I'm just very sorry that the blowback affected people for whom I have a great deal of respect, especially Robert Eerhart.
Due to three elements I used to add what I thought was innocuous humor to my talk at EECI2011, a small number of people who took issue with my cartoons (some of whom are basing their judgment entirely on hearsay) are now calling for a "code of conduct" for speakers. In other words, censorship.
As technology advances, job openings become a de facto proving ground for absurdly expansive applicant requirements. It is no small wonder job-seekers exaggerate their abilities on their CV's.
I've been invited to participate on the Building an EE Business panel with Mitchell Kimbrough of Solspace and Ryan Masuga of devot:ee.
