      Dave you have my vote and here’s why:

      You share your views and experiences in a way that is accessible and understandable to me, even when the content goes WAY above my pay grade.

      -and the cool thing about THAT, is that I hang on all the way through that stuff I don’t understand and come out of it on the other side maybe not with a FULL handle on what’s going on, but with a much better idea than before.

      But above all-ABOVE ALL, this learning and coolness happens amidst laughter, joy, and electrically induced explosions.

      Something we all seem to share is an enthusiasm for the field, and that’s the big difference.

        Thanks Michael.
        Enthusiasm and fun is the key.
        If I really wanted to just teach, I’m sure I could teach things a lot better and more efficiently than I do. But that’s probably not nearly as much fun for me or my audience.

        You pretty much nailed it!
        Why do I (and we) continually embarrass ourselves like this? :-/

      Dave… It;s your voice. There are rumors over the net that if you play your videos backwards hidden messages will emerge. Like “You like me”, “I am the best”, “Girls, you love me” etc

      :D :D :D

        “Paul is dead” perhaps?

      Greetings from places in the world you never heard of :)

      Whow, you’ve done a lot since your first blog… Nice to see that old footage again.

      Keep up the nice work. And just a suggestion for another rant: RFID tags. I heard that the mythbusters prepared to make an episode about RFID, but they couldn’t because texas instruments, american express, visa etc. blocked it. (http://dft.ba/-rfid).

      You have my vote btw!

      You forgot one important clip to add to the video. “Don’t turn it on….take it apaaaart!”

      I love the last sentence. It’s very empowering.
