The “Bulkoholics” No. 2

Dear Bulkoholics,

We continue our Bulkoholics Show with photos of the last International Powder & Bulk Solids Conference & Exhibition in Chicago May 6-8, 2014. You know quite well that the next Show will take place May 3-5, 2016, and then many Bulkoholics will meet again. It will be the 40th Anniversary of this event, the largest in the Americas.

By the way, you find our detailed Powder & Bulk Solids Photo Gallery here . This document  has now 42,128 Visitors/Users. This is in less than two years.

I must apologize that many names, from people seen so often, and sometimes even from good old friends, do not come readily. So I kindly ask you to email me corrections and improvements to the photo captions (wohlbier@bulk-online.com) .

We published Bulkoholics No. 1 a week ago, on February 13,  and I am really surprised that this document already has over 500 Views. If these relatively high views figures continue, we will also continue publishing  photos of people active in the powder and bulk solids handling and processing field.

I repeat my invitation to you to send in photos of your “bulkoholics”, i.e. colleagues, business friends, competitors and teachers. All this should not be dead serious, in fact I think it should be some fun and entertainment as well.

But we also received a serious comment. Vinayak Sathe of Goa wrote:

Sir,
Our generation of engineers is outdated. I graduated in 1958. For first 30 years, engineering involved finding solutions when resources were scarce and experience counted a lot. Now the projects are large, machines are larger and maintained by contractors and operated by contract workers or remotely by remote control. With third industrial revolution with Internet of machines – a  very small number of professionals will be involved in designing systems for operation and self repairs.
A different kind of forum is required for bulk handling solutions. Probably it already exists and I am not aware of it.
I like your effort of preparing a document which will record happenings in the trade which was mainstay of baby boom engineers.
Regards,
Vinayak Sathe,
Goa, India.

Does anybody know of a “different kind of forum”  Mr. Sathe is looking for? If so, please let us know so that we can learn from it.
