Joel Neidig of ITAMCO Speaking (and mentioning MTConnect) at The White House

The Obama Administration has done a phenomenal job supporting manufacturing.

To celebrate this fact, this past Wednesday December 21st there was a two hour meeting at The White House to recap the many manufacturing accomplishments of the Obama Administration.  There were a wide array of speakers with Joel Neidig of ITAMCO being one of the real highlights.

Joel sent me a note that he would be speaking at this White House event.  Joel is the Manager of Development and Technology for ITAMCO and is one of the most creative and smartest individuals that I know.  If if I had to pick one young rock star in manufacturing it would be Joel Neidig of ITAMCO

Joel nailed it during his presentation, mentioned applying the concept of hacking (this is the completely positive vein of creatively programming to do interesting things and NOT the negative concept of hacking we hear about in the press) in manufacturing and that he spoke a little about MTConnect - which was very cool!  

Below is the quick photo I took of the TV (Chromecasting it) when Joel was speaking.  Way to go Joel!
