The Joy Of Wire: June 3
This Thursday, June 3, Steve Lampen will be giving his Joy Of Wire presentation at Crash Space.
Steve has given this talk dozens of times as a special presentation for his employer, Belden, the leading manufacturer of cable for the broadcast and entertainment industries. Now he gives it to a larger audience. This thought-provoking presentation covers the march of technology, focusing on those with lack of vision that stood in the way of progress, and on the technologies that has been lost and rediscovered. He covers subjects as varied as Aztec basketball and the Big Bang, and challenges his audience about their own lack of vision and where we are going. Are you ready for tomorrow? There are ethical and moral questions rapidly coming which many do not see or understand. And, believe it or not, he brings the journey back to the subject of wire and cable.
Steve Lampen has worked for Belden for nineteen years and is currently Multimedia Technology Manager and also Product Line Manager for Entertainment Products. Prior to Belden, Steve had an extensive career in radio broadcast engineering and installation, film production, and electronic distribution. Steve holds an FCC Lifetime General License (formerly a First Class FCC License) and is an SBE Certified Radio Broadcast Engineer. On the data side he is a BICSI Registered Communication Distribution Designer. His latest book, “The Audio-Video Cable Installer’s Pocket Guide” is published by McGraw-Hill. His column “Wired for Sound” appears in Radio World Magazine.
Talk starts at 8pm, open to the public. Free for members $10 suggested donations for non-members.

Great presentation! Got me “wired” about a lot of stuff, especially what the future holds in terms of telecommunications, and my possible impact on developement and/or as a User. And Wired was only the half of it, you Luddites of the Informations Age, Wake Up! Thanks to both Theron for his astute insight in inviting Steve, and to Steve for such an eloquent , jocular and thought-provoking evening. The Joy of Wire! Whodathunkit? 🙂
Anyone know if there is a transcript of this presentation available anywhere? I attended and thought it was very thought provoking and I’d love to get my hands on the transcript if possible,
There’s not a transcript, but the talk should be archived on the ustream. There is a copy of the powerpoint deck (which is just the talking points, not the actual text of the talk) here: http://ennesdfw.info/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/JoyofWire2010.pdf
