Popular Logistics Blog: Managing the Flow of Ideas
I like reading articles that contain information that I should have known but didn't. E.g., do you know what Pascal's Wager (aka Pascal's Gambit) is? What about the Precautionary Principle? Me neither (assuming you answered "no"). Thanks to Popular Logistics and Wikipedia though, now I do. Were you aware of the relationship between a particular emergency whistle and a subsystem in the F-16 Fighting Falcon? I wasn't, but am now. Like Gomer Pyle once explained to Sgt. Carter, "It's one of those things that make you go, hmmmm." ...or was it "Shazam?"
...and wit? You want an example of wit? They're full of it over there at Popular Logistics. To wit, "RFCafe is an outstanding resource; as we try to build our own knowledge of RF technologies and to make useful information available here on Popular Logistics, we’ll try to resist actual plagiarism and instead properly credit Mr. Blattenberger. Which may mean naming any 'Radio Communications' reference pages after him."
Here's the one line from Jon's e-mail that really let me know we might be kindred spirits:
"We'll probably want to run another piece once we've read through what you've got to say about expert witnesses, which belongs in Discovery Strategist, a blog for lawyers and people who can stand to work with them." I'm still LMAO over that one.
* Sidebar: The thumbnail image above is Popular Logistics' favicon. Here is their story for how and why it came to be..
"Our "favicon," the small image which generally appears in the browser address bar or on tabs for a given site, is the International Code of Signals (ICS) flag which stands for both the letter "K" (KILO in the NATO alphabet), and for the message "I wish to communicate with you." The same messages can be communicated by signaling the letter "K" in Morse code via signal lamp. (While a proper signal lamp may be ideal, a flashlight, probably best employing red LEDs, will certainly fit the bill). "
These items are an archive of past Topical Smorgasbord items that have appeared on the RF Cafe homepage. In keeping with the "cafe" genre, these tidbits of information are truly a smorgasbord of topics. They all pertain to topics that are related to the general engineering and science theme of RF Cafe.
