Me and Jeri, as part of the Element 14 Roving Reporter team, were tasked with doing a recap of each days' event at ESC Silicon Valley 2011. While our sound and video recording quality could use a little polishing (the intro bits are shiny, we appreciate that), our enthusiasm for the event and going over all the cool things we saw that day was the real focus.   The day 2 recap is with John Sokol, Chris and Jeri.   Thanks again to Element14 for sending us out there to talk to al ...

Day of Discovery

Posted by Chris_Gammell May 5, 2011
I have a couple projects going on, both for my full time job and for my personal interests. So I spent a lot of my 2nd day at ESC Silicon Valley 2011 wandering around the show floor talking to vendors about their products. There's lots of cool stuff (and no, I don't mean the swag).   One thing that has been encouraging throughout ESC is that there are a lot of engineers there. No, not the attendees, of course they're engineers. I mean a lot of the people manning the booths for companies ar ...

Day 1 Recap Video

Posted by Chris_Gammell May 4, 2011
Hi Everyone! Due to some encoding issues, the recap is a bit late, but better than never! Here's another summary of what happened on day 1 at ESC. It's just me in this video, but subsequent ones will also feature Jeri Ellsworth and some other guests. Check it out below and leave any comments you might have in the comments!   ...
One of my full time nerdy activities at home is hosting on online radio show/podcast called The Amp Hour. One of the best things about the nature of how me and my co-host (Dave Jones of the EEVblog) record the show is that it's quite mobile, so we were able to record the show last night from my hotel room. We also had Jeff Keyzer of MightyOhm (one of our regular guests) sit in and add his perspective from the show and the surplus shopping we were able to do. It was quite fun and we dedicated abo ...

The Almighty Woz!

Posted by Chris_Gammell May 4, 2011
I'm not a fanboy...of anything, especially Apple products. But after hearing The Woz speak on Tuesday morning at ESC Silicon Valley, I can see why people are drawn to him.   The conversation was between Brian Fuller, director of EELife at EEtimes, and The Woz (or Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer if you're new to the game as I recently was). It was a 'fireside chat', which means they basically got to sit on couches while they talked, a great format.   Brian asked some great ...

Whirlwind

Posted by Chris_Gammell May 4, 2011
Wow! What a day! I can't believe day 1 is already over!   If people don't know, I'm a roving reporter for Element 14 and I'm at ESC Silicon Valley 2011. It's been a furious pace to get to as many booths as possible and to see as much as possible.   So why have I been going non-stop? Why was I up with my mind racing into the night last night?   Was it the products? No, but those have been quite great! There have been lots of new product announcements and showcasing of new produc ...
