Another note from DAC 2012: In Gary Smith’s Sunday night pre-DAC talk, he mentioned that in 2011, ESL tools took off – the famous Hockey Stick. See his slide (courtesy of my friend Frank Schirrmeister):
Could the long-awaited, long postponed arrival of the ESL Hockey Stick at the same time as the Stanley Cup Finals be a coincidence? Enquiring minds think not! It must be a mystical confluence after all.
So do ESL Designers favour the Kings or the Devils? All my favourite teams are not in the finals, so I will stay strictly neutral.
