 The banner is now complete so go to www.cypress.com and watch PSoC Today.  I admit I have a face made for radio but I am charming in small doses and the show is informative and fun to watch.  The Swedish Institute of Extreme Cleverness (SIEC) has declared it to be The best video ever!   So go watch already.

 Yesterday I went to www.cypress.com to look for the banner for PSoC Day AND IT WASN T THERE!  The 1st episode  can by found in the video section of the web site (http://www.cypress.com/?rID=60713) and of course on YouTube.  I found out that the web design group in India is too busy with more important things.  I don t understand.  What can be more important than PSoC Today?

I heard that some of the Aps Engineers in Bangalore would like to be on my show.  Sure, it easy!  Just go over to the web design team, smack em around a little.  You know, help them get their priorities straight.  When you go to leave, pause at the door, turn around, and say You don t want me to come back!   You won t get in much trouble if you don t leave bruises.  Maybe an anger management class, sensitivity training, or a heart felt apology.  This is the kind of thing that will keep the company from promoting you into management and you get to stay technical your whole career.  Well tomorrow the next episode comes out so let s hope the banner is there.

 

ps  Send me your company shirt and I will wear it on a future episode!

Tomorrow will be the debut of the new video series called PSoC Today and as its host I am personally inviting you to watch.  I will be funny, informative, irreverent, and a very enjoyable way to spend 5 minutes every Tuesday and Thursday.

To encourage you to watch we will be giving out free stuff (shirts, kits, etc)

 

If you send me your company shirt (XXL) and I wear it on air you will get a free PSoC dev kit and, if you wish, a letter to your boss publicly announcing that you are under appreciated and under paid.

 

I request your feedback to know what you want to see, so email me at.

 

psoctoday@cypress.com

 

If we read your letter we ll send you something.

 

Ps  Send shirt to:

A while back I visited a company in Phoenix AZ that did Minivan conversions for the handicapped.  Unfortunately I lost their contact information and do no remember their name.  I remember they had had a cool ap for PSoC that made a proximity sensor to detect if someone was standing in the way of the wheelchair ramp as it moved into place.  Anyone know who I am talking about?

Sometimes to truly understand something, you have to read between the lions.

 

I am here at a Chinese restaurant in Germany with Thomas Baeuerlein, a PSoC Specialist for Arrow.  Sounds like the start of a joke, An American and a German wok into a Chinese buffet and ..  (The one of you that comes up with the best punch line gets a free PSoC5 dev kit.)

 

I spent a week going around Germany visiting German industrial customers.  Some very interesting productions.  I believe Germans have a natural inclination for the design of Industrial products and will continue to be a power house in this area in the future.
