Our work group went on a retreat to make us a tighter and more efficient team. One of the exercises involved using minimal materials (a rope, some hooks, tape, etc) to retrieve a sack from inside a roped-off circle. We decided to dangle the hook from the rope, catch the sack, lift it, and pull it out of the circle. This strategy worked well until it came time to lift the sack: it took a lot of force (explained in Phys-101). At some point I realized we were not going to make it (I felt myself tipping over). I decided it was time to let go. Alas, I forgot to mention this to my two teammates.
The Spreeta device my group makes was awarded one of the Products of the Year for 1999 by an electronic products magazine! I and two co-workers were photographed with the award for the Texas Instruments newspaper. The award was made by Nambe which makes cool modern-looking vases.
See the many endorsements for our product.
