I do love the series of TV commercials for the Hopper – a DVR device for DISH satellite TVs. Especially the wacky extended family with the strong Boston accents (Dorchester maybe?). “I’m SMAAHT. I’m wicked SMAAHT.”
I spent much of last week with lots of truly smart
people at Canberra Industries, makers of a wide array of radiation detectors
for the nuclear industry and others. Lots of engineers there, but I’m use to
working in an engineering culture, so that wasn’t anything new. But Canberra employs about 60 radiation
physicists at the facility. Now that’s egghead city with super clever folk
running up and down the aisles! They can do math & stuff.
