I will never forget when one day I walked into a project site and the end user said, “There seems to be a message on everything saying it’s overheating.” I walked downstairs to the basement where all the racks were, and there was a dust sheet draped over all the racks and a guy sawing next to it. I thought, well, yeah this isn’t exactly the best thing. Nick Fichte (Crestron) on the strategy of building racks off-site from the CEDIA Podcast “A Pair of Project Profiles” (Episode 110, No. 1910)

I am so impressed by the eager willingness of people to learn, to advance their professional careers at a show like this. The classrooms are full. The questions are superb. Rich Green (Rich Green Ink, US) on the energy he encountered at ISE 2019 from the CEDIA Podcast “ISE Day One” (Episode 103, No. 1906a)
