Old Economy Steve's son is in town for Christmas, so Steve gave him a tour of the office on Friday.  He introduced me as "our secretary" :( and mentioned that I'm single   >:(

I think that if Old Economy Steve was asked to describe his role, it would probably go something like this...

That's kind of what Technical Sales Tom does, actually. Tom interacts with the customers and understands what they're trying to accomplish, and is able to work with the engineers to come up with something that meets the customer's requirements.  Tom, Good Boss Greg, and Engineer Ed designed a product in 2 minutes last week.

Tom: "Just had a call from a guy who wants to interface his framjack with a zibitz. What do we have that could do that?"

Greg: "We could modify a Flarnex 5000 to drive a zibitz."

Ed: "That wouldn't work. The framjack output isn't strong enough to interface with a Flarnex."

Greg: "What if we use the Flarnex transcoupler inputs?"

Ed: "That could work. We'd have to decouple the fragmatic feedback plasmolyzer from the transcoupler or else it'll be unstable."

Greg: "Gotcha. I'll mark up the drawings!"

Tom: "Alright! I'll let the customer know!"

And thus was born the Flarnex 5040. Just three guys standing around with coffee mugs talking Geordi LaForge technobable. I work with amazing people.
