ESC Boston, embedded sessions and malformed Exit sign


I’m in Boston for Embedded Systems East (I will be on the Microsoft booth Wednesday morning, and presenting a session called “Windows Embedded: from sensors to servers” on Thursday). The session walks through hardware trends, software trends, user experience trends, and then dives into technology, starting at the CPU (parallel programming), moving up to user experience (XAML based user interface for Windows Embedded CE), and distributed programming using DPWS and CCR/DSS.

This evening a few of us were out for dinner, I spotted the following sign…

Malformed Exit

This is of course an Exit sign, but, given the angle brackets this is obviously an XML tag of some kind, and is malformed – surely this should be </EXIT>.

Look out for news/information from ESC Boston tomorrow…

    I don’t agree, this should be <EXIT/> 😉

    Looks like the money I could be saving by switching to Geico is moonlighting as an exit sign. 🙂

    Maybe we don’t see the complete picture, and there is a </exit> down below.  

    So i vote for not malformed at all 🙂

    Its the beginning of the exit.  Not the end.
