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: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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.
