Brahms was considered dissonant in his day. Go figure. I've found the best musicians to be the most down to Earth people I know. Driven maybe, but not false.

Thanks,
Chris

I've been going through a fiber art phase. Current faves are Robbi Eklow and Barb Forrister. Amazing combinations of form and texture.

I would like to put an homage to Sir Alex mm's and some others, here. Looking at their PCBs, we feel the part of art in it: Dealing with ground issues to build a nice looking printed board, where both electrons and our eyes live in harmony.
My son, when he was young used to say, looking at some populated printed boards: "Oh, it looks like a city".

I was asked by my (Stupid) boss in 70s why i spend so much time to make printed boards looking good. In order to keep on, i answered: If the board is beautifull and organized, you will save money during manufacturing, as component's errors will be more obvious, and, if you are proud of your product, you will be more convincing selling-it. it worked.

When we design something, at each instant, art and design is involved, even if we do not realize or do-it in purpose.
It was obvious, during the cold war, looking at the US rockets and spacesuits, comparing to USSR's ones.

You just gave me a brilliant idea. I have a stairwell here with a large wall, I'll bring my mother's quilt of the AD711 layout for that spot. Nerd fiber art (it's actually great).
