Big Engineering

Posted by Mike Jensen

Mike Jensen Most of the customers I work with design small systems, or smaller pieces of larger systems. Occasionally I get to see an end product: a car, an airplane, a mockup of the International Space Station to name a few.

And if your group is like mine, product planning meetings are seldom boring. I am privileged to work with some pretty sharp folks who are very capable engineers, and very passionate about what they do. Our planning discussions are always interesting, and often animated.

Mike Jensen There are times in each of our lives when preparation and opportunity come together in a single moment for once in a lifetime experiences. Then there are times when dumb luck rules the day but produces the same result. I would like to say that I am regularly prepared to open the door when opportunity knocks, but more often than not I stumble into worthwhile opportunities, some of which truly are once … Read More

He enjoys science, as does my younger … Read More

Nazita Saye I was having a good ol’ chat with one of my friends about social media. Back in the day when we both went to school, social media wasn’t even a twinkle in someone’s eye. Gathering data was hard work — you had to physically go to the library to look-up information (gasp, shock, horror). If you wanted to wish someone a happy birthday you had to either pick up the phone or send them a card via snail mail. … Read More
