Great going 😀

Let's get people from other engineering industries as well. Let's say people who design rides in theme parks, build aeroplanes etc.

What say? 😉

Keep adding, I'm hunting 😁

Hey there!

I've contacted Dell couple of times, but looks like they are just too busy to reply 😒 . I haven't yet contacted Zune, but I'll sure add it to the list 😉 .

Can anyone here get us in touch with the Apple's iPod/iPhone team? If yes, please get in touch with me over PM or email : admin at crazyengineers dot com

Right now, I'm trying to get in touch with the makers of Bruj Dubai 😁

I do not know of these people personally, however I could do some research in finding contact info. How should it be co-ordinated? Should I give you the contact info, or contact them and give them your contact info?

[Bumping into old thread]

I know few of our Small Talks are pending. While we are working hard at getting big people to respond; it won't hurt to see who do our CEans want to see in our Small Talks.

So - who should be on CE Small Talk?

gohm • Aug 5, 2008
a couple ideas off the top of my head:

center for green chemistry & green engineering at yale
tesla motors inc.
large hadron collider
