I received the following email response to the meatballs post from a friend, an MIT guy and among the most intellectually curious people I know:
Read your post on the meatballs, and it reminded me of James Burke’s television series, Connections — now available on YouTube. A friend just sent the link, and I’ve been savoring each minute of them. I bet you’d enjoy them as well:
He was right. And here it is for you too.
And here are the links to the remaining episodes:
This does reinforce an existing point of quiet joy that I have had for a long time – the miracle that is electricity in my home, the quiet contributions of engineers that make it possible – again, without any particular care for my well-being. So today, in the same way that we shake hands with soldiers and thank them for what they do for us, seek out an electrical engineer and thank him or her for what they do.
To my MIT friend, and to the rest of you for that matter, I encourage you to share your feedback in the comments.
