A Quick Update

I'll be traveling to Albuquerque and Denver next week for the NI Tech Symposia. If you live in New Mexico or Colorado, I hope to see you. (Dec. 2 for Albuquerque, Dec. 4 for Denver.) For more info...

I'll be presenting "What's New in LabVIEW 8.6", "Software Engineering Best Practices for LabVIEW", and "Using IEEE-1588, GPS, and IRIG-B for Multi-System Synchronization".

This weekend before the Albuquerque NI Tech Symposium, I'll be making my annual trip to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge for some bird photography. Let me know if any of you are hanging out there.

A quick update on our employee giving campaign. (I got a lot of positive feedback on that post, by the way.) In these tough economic times, we managed to increase the total dollars pledged, as well as the number of donors. I am proud that NI employees recognize that non-profits need us now more than ever, and that we were able to step up and help meet those needs. I know of only one other Austin high-tech company that grew their campaign dollars this year.

For me personally, it was an emotionally rewarding experience. I'm glad the "Why me?" of heading the campaign turned into a "Yes".

I've got some more blog posts in my head, and I'll be trying to find the time to get them out.
