I thought it might be a good time to open up a discussion about the NRA show this year.

Who's planning on attending?

Perhaps we should consider arranging a FOHBOH.com get together.

Thought I'd throw the idea out here and see what sticks to the wall.

Dave, thanks for the nice comments. I would love to have a meet and greet athe Reagle Beagle for people coming to town. The 19th seems like the most logical day. We can call it an informal happy hour just to shake hands and put names and faces. If you plan on attending, let me know so I can reserve space for the group.
Bill, thanks for volunteering the Reagle Beagle as a venue for the FohBoh Meet Up (or Drink Up, as we like to call it internally)... We checked it out online, and the place looks awesome. I grew up in the seventies, so I'll feel right at home. The 19th sounds good to me, we'll be in touch!
Great idea - count me in
What kind of sponsored parties are at the NRA show? breakfast? lunches? happy hours? night time?

are they at McCormick or in the surrounding areas?

Thanks!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
