Why Doesn’t Our DAC Look Like This?
Check out this YouTube Video with the tantalizing title: DAC’08 Teaser Montage. This is the kind of teaser our DAC (Design Automation Conference) should run. To their credit, the folks at EDAC have taken a step in that direction with the video created for the recent Kaufman Awards event. The “Kaufman” video – the creative idea of Ed Sperling – was based on one of the great Orson Welles’s movie, Citizen Kane.
Don’t get me wrong! We – the technical community – need videos that convey concise information about the latest technology and trends. But we – as engineers, especially the younger engineering community – need videos that inspire and express our creative side, too. After all, most of us worked hard through engineering school because we wanted to create, to build new and useful technology. Why not show the world our good works through the medium of the masses – video!
