My studio is ready to go, but some equipment here at the TV station is not. If not fixed it’s another week in the hotel. I was hoping to sleep in my own bed.
Meanwhile, yesterday I was asked by our chief engineer to explain my tech needs to an IT guy. It used to be video and audio flowed through ‘electronic plumbing.’ No more. Most of the chain in today’s digital video environment is IT.
I started explaining how the signal would flow from my house to the TV station when Scott, our CE, interrupted. “He’s an engineer,” he told the IT pro while pointing at me.
Of all the nerdy accomplishments possible, being called an engineer by an actual engineer was pretty cool.
I’m not really an engineer. I know enough to be dangerous. I basked in that compliment all day!
