Why call this Thermocouple Thursday?
For two reasons. First, because the rest of the days at DAC 2012 in San Francisco got alliterated:
* Super Sunday
* Marvelous Monday
* Terrible Tuesday
* Wicked Wednesday
And second, because “a thermocouple is a device consisting of two dissimilar metals joined at two points, the potential difference between the two junctions being a measure of their difference in temperature.”*
And if that doesn’t describe Thursday, June 7th, at DAC 2012 what does?
After all, nobody really sticks around for Thursday at DAC unless a) they’re presenting on that day, b) they’ve got a client and/or student presenting on that day, or c) they’re staying through the weekend to vacation in The City.
But people not sticking around for Thursday at DAC is just wrong, because Thursday is the thermocouple day that connects the two main parts of life in EDA.
