I can’t survive in academia without faith and my friends; that is why my AUT Embedded Systems Software (EMSOFT) research group is a lifeline for me around here. They help keep me focused and balanced as we support each other. They are also the source of huge doses of humor..
They had a 12:00 noon NZT meeting today in New Zealand and I joined them by Skype at 12:00 midnight, Lulea time. My friend Maryam Gh was passing the meeting room at the time and snapped this photo through the door <laugh>.
The last time I worked away in the US for an extended period was in 1996, At that time, I carried a bulky dial-up modem and connected back to home base through Compuserve to stay in touch….barely… oh my… how things have changed.
By the way, I AM smiling…honest…<laugh>
I love this stuff.
