I received the gift of coffee at Christmas, but with my Keurig 2.0 machine that locks out all brands except the ones it has business relationships with, I'm unable to brew it. Unless...
1-Swear because this coffee brews fine in Keurig 1.0 machines
2-Cut lid off authorized product
3-Tape it to top of unauthorized product
5-Spike with rum and celebrate your hackiness
6-Keep the lid to use again later
It's the day we've been working towards, looking forward to and also dreading, the day we announced our Steam launch of GameGuru, the new face of game creation and our new home for the next decade. I could not sum it up better than the press released from ...
- US Naval Academy
I grew up the eldest son in a blue collar family of a French immigrant in a small town in New England. From my teenage years on, I spent many summers and weekends helping my father in every aspect of construction from clearing the land, pouring foundations, framing houses, to roofing, and everything in between. After high school, I was lucky enough to receive an appointment to the US Naval Academy, where I got a BS in Physics with a focus on Quantum Mechanics & Nuclear Systems.
My initial 4 years in the Navy was going through the Naval Nuclear Power Pipeline & then serving as a Submarine Officer on board the USS Santa Fe as the Electrical Assistant, Reactor Controls Assistant, and finally the Weapons Department Assistant Department Head responsible for the Sonar Systems, Fire Control Systems, and Torpedoes. As a lieutenant, I earned both the "Order of the Ditch" from changing home port from Groton, CT where it was built to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and "Golden Shellback" from crossing the equator at the International Date Line on the way to Hong Kong. After his submarine tour, LT Mantion reported for duty to SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team ONE, also near Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and owned the $50 million "relocation" project responsible for moving the entire team from Ford Island to its current home on Pearl City Peninsula. I left the Navy in the spring of 1999 and headed to California.
My first civilian job was as a Product Marketing Engineer for a small chip company near Monterey, CA. After learning all I could about semiconductors, I was hired to be a Senior Analyst for In-Stat, covering a wide range of topics from Network Processors to Switch Fabrics to Online Gaming. After a 1 month transition to Principal Analyst for ABI Research, I accepted a position focusing on Switch Fabrics for Intel. After that effort was defunded, I worked in technical marketing for the Embedded Group and was the originator and chief technical consultant behind the popular "Intel® Chopper" that was launched at ESC in 2007. From there, Eric moved on and spent several years as a Senior Competitive Intelligence Analyst, before becoming the chief evangelist behind the "MARK/ARK" project which become Intel's fastest growing and most loved website in 2009.
