I was lucky to have had the chance to come to Cypress and work on PSoC. At the interview,I immediately got it and told my wife this is the part I had been waiting for my whole career. I have also met Engineers with as much passion or maybe more (Robert Ashby. David Smith, Barry Bines, and Gray Smock come to mind.) I have referred to these people as zealots.
Well Cypress would like to put together a program to recognize these people and treat them with the respect they deserve as the Engineering gods that they are! The problem is that some in the company feel the term zealot may be offensive to some. Now this doesn t even make the top ten things offensive things I have said last year. (Cypress has a whole wing of HR people that deal with the problems I cause.) Cypress wants to call them Ambassadors. With that name we should give them sports coats, funny hats, and hope they don t get beat up in the school yard. (That last statement is even more offensive than zealot!)
Do you find the term Zealot offensive?
Do you have a suggestion?
What do you think of PNuT ?
PSoC Pearl ?
PSoC Patriot ?
What would you like to be called?
I'll give a 5LP kit away for the best response!
