Title: A show at the workplace...
Post by: MrPlacid on June 21, 2010, 05:02:16 pm
Maybe when the boss isn't looking, Dave can video the inside of his workplace. I would love to see the gears true professionals uses, the cleanliness of the workbench, how they store components & parts. It's probably be good for will be EEs to know what to expect.

If your coworkers are shy, have them wear paperbags while you're filming ;)

Yeah, that thought crossed my mind. I remember Dave said one time that his boss recommend the workers to have blogs. And I see alot of "How It's Made" shows on tv and it seemed many companies like to show/displayed their products.

 Anyways, I purchased my SKIL iXo Screwdriver, because I saw one show how the company made gas chain saw. They showed the factory and R&D involved. Impressed with what I saw, when I saw the electric screw driver I knew instantly it was quality stuff. 

But, I wouldn't blame Dave or his boss if they decide not to do the show.

That's correct, they do actually encourage us to have and participate in blogs of all sorts.
But I deliberately leave work and the EEVblog totally separate, lest I accidentally say something they don't like.
Don't worry, you aren't missing anything, it's not your traditional engineering company.
This is where I wish I was actually still at my old company since starting this blog, I could have shown so much cool stuff, lots of interesting topics to talk about, and had the finest equipment slush money could buy.

Dave.
