I was interested in extending my “computer” glasses, the ubiquitous reading glasses of yesterday set for the focal length for computer screens and I wondered what everyone else was finding now that computer screens are finally commonplace.

I was grateful to find another person who has done the same research and has also ordered glasses off the Internet.

Wired has a great engineering and technology list appropriate to the day called This Day in Tech. Check out the site and see a plethora of information from a variety of past years and experiences.
Today I was using Engineering.com which has a lot of free tools, an extensive engineering library, directories, and as a result is a online destination for engineers. If nothing else, browse the library, and don’t miss the article on the hovercraft as fall is approaching and as an engineer you don’t expect to use your leaf blower for leaves. Now do you? Sometimes I wonder if we share enough as a discipline so I though I would mention this one resource for you to look at and bookmark.
From the site:
ENGINEERING.com also offers hosted and deployed engineering software and services to manufacturers, design consultants and engineering students around the world. In addition ENGINEERING.com offers the following resources to the engineering community: Free file sharing, ENGINEERING.com Collaboration Suite, News,Careers Section, Library, Software,Education, and Directories.
The public is invited! I believe we are going to attend some of these events. Call us if you are interested in getting together in Seattle at one of these.

I ran across an updated career search feature for Careers After College from the Princeton Review, and although you have to register (but can deselect the usual suspects that will email you everything) you can get to a short list of questions to identify a range of careers. The point to taking the quiz isn’t to give you a definitive answer, but a short list of possible careers that you can research or think about. Especially with the number of career changes we are all going to experience increasing over time.
