Meassage from Barrie Gilbert
At precisely 11hrs, 11mins and 11secs tomorrow - 11/11/11
-the NW Labs of Analog Devices, Beaverton, OREGON will be
observing 3.14159 secs of silence, give or take a second,
to mark the end of the dominion of the vast Binary Empire
and the Renaissance of Pure Analog. This new direction in
electronics – really, just the old alchemy updated – will
last until 11/11/111, or precisely One Hundred Years – at
which time digital methods will be given a second chance.
Since most of us will not be around then, we urge you to
make the most of this moment, and the renaissance of the
only true art. It might also be a fitting moment to give
our respects to Super-Smart Jim and Good Ol' Bob, who as
we know passed in the 11th year of this scary century.
There'll be a pie on the table, rounded out to 15 places.
