    ETC Architectural Market Manager Joe Bokelman explains what a Pecha Kucha is: A what? What is a Pecha Kucha, you ask? An easy answer might be to refer you to pecha-kucha.org , and leave it at that. But, if you haven’t already clicked away, a llow me to make an analogy: if Karaoke is a way for drunken...

  • Good Humor Man

    Is it the 95-degree heat, or did I just see Fred riding a bike down the hallway? And was the bike rigged with a freezer full of ice cream bars and a string of bells? And, was he dressed like the Good Humor Man?

    There is a yearly ritual that takes place in the ETC Service Department. It usually happens in late February and involves a great deal of planning, coordination and teamwork.

  • Town Square for the Holidays

    Town Square has gone through its annual holiday transformation, thanks to a lot of talent and work by many ETC staff-slash-set designers. The big guy (not Fred, the OTHER big guy) is even part of the installation. These cell phone pictures don't really do the whole thing justice - more difficult to see...

  • Another ETC innovation reaches retirement

    The recent arrival of a new automated coffee machine in the Finance/Sales/Marketing kitchen has brought delicious dark roast coffee to many - and the end of an era for one. With the fancy schmancy new coffee dispenser, the brew-your-own lineup of coffee pots has been put away. And, with no responsibility...

  • I Don't Want to be a Downer...

    It seems like there is always a good bit of talk about what a fun place ETC is to work but last night I was lying awake in bed obsessing over a number of different issue I need to deal with and felt that someone should address the fact that we do real work here J Now I’m defiantly of the belief that...

  • Mike’s Three and a Half Years in Europe

    After three and a half years of living and working in Europe I have only come to grasp one thing with absolute certainty: Europe is not the U.S.A. and the European Union is not a single market place. Granted, it is very nice to have a single currency in the form of the EURO. In my case, I left a nice...

  • Weighing Progress in Pounds

    Figured it was worth explaining what Isaac (and some of the rest of the summer help) was REALLY doing with those big stacks of paper in a previously-posted photo. There's a group of interns helping ETC to scan an estimated three million pages of systems documents as part of a larger effort to be more...

  • Mike to Write Blog Posts

    I spent just over four years in the United States NAVY as a Fire Control Technician. (Like missile firing not the hot red flames and smoke type of fire). It did not take me long to learn that the word NAVY was actually an acronym for Never Again Volunteer Yourself. But in the world of ETC you do not...

  • Doesn't Apply to ETC

    I may work in a cubicle here, but it definitely doesn't feel like this . I think somebody must have been weary of this chart when our building was designed. Hence the many common areas, conference rooms with windows, the deli , the picnic blankets......
