'[EE] Calling all Electrical Engineers'

Hi All,

We just launched our new flagship electrical engineering community today. It
is called "EEWeb". The focus of the community is to create a place for
hardware engineers to call home. (share technical blog posts, document
projects, post resume, etc). We would really like some engineers to create a
profile and give us some feedback.

Our site includes an online toolbox, daily featured sections, community
driven articles and projects, and custom engineer profiles where you can
follow other engineers based on your interest tags.

Here is a link to the site: http://www.eeweb.com/

Example Engineer Profile: http://www.eeweb.com/profiles/cody_miller

Here is where you would register: http://www.eeweb.com/register

We would love some feedback we have spent over two years developing this
site.


Thanks,

Cod

Just had a very, very  quick look.

Quite impressed, it does have stuff that interests me and it appears
to be well set out with the articles easily accessed.  Will definately
dig a bit deeper later on when I get a bit more time.

Does registering a) cost ?,  b) Give you any special benifits, access
rights etc?

Isn't that what element14 is supposed to be?  At least they don't hide who
they are, which is Farnell.  I have no problem with a company trying to do
this, but a big problem if they somehow hope for or rely on your ignorance.

> Here is a link to the site: http://www.eeweb.com/

I see a DigiKey logo by the search bar, and then later after scolling to the
bottom of the page I see "DigiKey Corporation".  So are you guys trying to
do a element14 knockoff?  It kinda looks like that.

I think element14 is a great idea, but so far have been dissappointed by the
execution.  If you guys can do better, I'm all for it, but I would like it
stated up front who you are and what you're trying to get out of it.

> We would love some feedback we have spent over two years developing

OK, I'm writing these comments as I'm signing up and exploring the site.

I think your intellectual property rights license is unreasonable:

 "Content that is covered by Intellectual Property rights like
 photos, schematics, files, and videos, you agree to specifically
 give us the following permission: you grant us a non-exclusive,
 transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to
 use any IP content that you post on or in connection with EEWeb
 ("IP License"). This IP license ends when you delete your IP
 content or account."

If you want people to post meaningful stuff, you have to let them retain
ownership.  You might say that anything posted is automatically granted a
free unlimited right to be copied, but otherwise giving specifically you
unlimited IP rights is ridiculous.  If it's to simplify letting people use
the information on the site, then there is no need to grant only you the
rights.  This means you're trying to get away with something hoping most
people won't notice or forget.  For example, if I mention a technique I've
patented, does that mean you end up with rights to use my patent for free?
Clearly that's unreasonable.  Even worse, you apparently then have the right
to license it to others.

I can understand posting on your site constitutes "public disclosure", but
unless the whole point is for you to grab IP from unsuspecting contributors,
you need to fix your policy.

I see on the profile page after creating a account that there is a way to
add a "quote", apparently to things you will post later.  Do we really need
to let people inflict this content free drivel on others.  This would be a
nice opportunity to make a clean break from such crap.

I thought I'd upload a profile picture, but nothing is telling me the aspect
ratio of the maximum space to display it.  Even better would be to know the
exact pixel dimensions you will use so I can format a picture to look best
on your system.  The grayed out head and shoulders look square, so I'll
upload a square picture and make it large enough so that when you shrink it
you hopefully won't add too many artifacts.

I uploaded a 1024x1024 square picture and you seem to have shrunk it well
enough, but it's **GRAY**!!  You never heard of color pixels?  Do you back
up your stuff on paper tape too!?

Now that I've uploaded a picture, I was going to poke around and possibly
set other parameters in my profile.  But now any way to get there seems to
be suddenly gone.  Oh, I see it now, there's a "edit your profile" link
right below the picture.  That used to be "edit your picture", which is
probably why I didn't notice it right away.  Now that I know it's there, I
guess this is OK, although it was confusing at first.

I had previously selected the "professional" radio button before deciding to
upload a picture, but now that selection is gone.  Argh, doing it again.  I
see things I can set like title, summary, interests, and the like, but I'm
reluctant to do any of that without having a better understanding of where
and how these things will be displayed.  Just as a test, I created a link
called "Resume" to my online resume.  I'm not doing more until I see how
this is presented.

Enough with my setup, now it's time to see what's here.  One thing such a
site can offer is a good set of web forums properly organized in a
comprehensible and findable tree structure.  This is where element14 fails
miserably.  There is just disorganized stuff all over the place and you
never have a feel you know what all is there or where you currently are
within whatever structure there might be.

Accross the top there are a bunch of links like Home, Design news,
Discussions, etc.

Home seems to be a very busy looking (that's not a compliment) bunch of
fluff you're trying to push on us rather than anything I care about.
However, I'm not sure what I expected there anyway.  I guess a introduction
and overview of the site to help make sense of the chaos instead of adding
to it would have been nice.  Oh well.

I'm most interested in a nicely organized set of forums, so let's see what's
here and how hard it is to find and make sense of.  Trying the "discussions"
link, since that seems the most likely to lead me there of the presented
choices.  Hmm, I see exactly 4 "catagories".  Maybe because the site is new,
but I would have expected you to create the empty hierarchy of topics and
let users fill them in.  Am I looking at only the topics people have posted?
If so, where's the topic hierarchy?  What else is here?  Why are you telling
me the number of "replies" a catagory has?  That makes no sense.  Posts have
replies, possibly you can call posts in a thread replies of the thread, but
I don't see how a "catagory" should have "replies".  Catagories should have
threads and possibly sub-catagories.  I'm already confused.

Clicking on "ANALOG" to see what it is.  I see a question by you about
current sensing.  This is clearly showing me what I call a "thread", which
is very misleading to call a "catagory".  I also now have to make my browser
window wider to eliminate the horizontal scroll bar.  I hate that.  HTML
should fit my window, not the other way around.  It's *my* screen, not
yours.  Now I see the reason for the width is that there are a whole bunch
of ads along the right side.  Don't do that.  You'd do far better to
advertise your stuff by association, not by getting in my face.  Now I see
that the thread posts are a fixed size in pixels.  There's no excuse for
that.  Let it flow according to my window size.  You don't know how big my
screen is or how much other stuff I want to see at the same time.  HTML is
designed to flow.  It really pisses me off when a web designer decides what
the formatting on my screen should look like.

Now I see your post has a small picture in its lower left corner.  At that
size I can see it's a opamp circuit but can't make out any of the writing or
other details.  I'm guessing it's a thumbnail to a larger picture you
posted.  Why can't it at least fill the width of the post area.  What's the
point of showing me a small unusable thumbnail if I have to expand it every
time?

Clicked on the thumbnail and the full size picture popped up right over part
of your post and a part of the next post below.  The schematic is now
clearly readable, but apparently I can't look at it and the other posts at
the same time.  The image itself is actually smaller than the width of the
post area, so there is no reason it couldn't have been displayed in line.

I'm now going to reply to your post, mostly to test drive the process.  I
don't really have anything to say, but I'll try to come up with something as
a excuse to do a reply.  Hmm.  Now I notice that your post has a "discuss
this question" button (why do you assume the first post of a thread is
always a question?  That seems wrong) and other posts have a "Reply" link.
I'm not sure what the difference is and can't imagine why there should be
one, but I'll try the "discuss.." button.

OK, that brings up a little edit box immediately below your post.  That
makes sense, but how do I quote whatever part of your post I want to respond
to?  I don't like just blurting out something without giving a little of the
context, especially since there are other replies and it will get confusing
quickly who said what to whom.  I wrote some rather content free stuff to
your original vague (I suspect you were just seeding the forum anyway)
question and hit "submit reply".

I now see my post at the bottom of the thread, but am bothered about its
context not being clear.  It's not obvious I replied to your original post
as apposed to one of the other replies.  I care about neatness, clarity, and
such details.  If the system won't allow me to post that way, I won't use
the site.

Oh well, gotta get back to some real work now.  I guess at this point I feel
about EEweb similar to element14.  It's a great idea but ideas are cheap and
it's all about the execution.  EEweb looks promising and already perhaps a
little clearer than element14.  I didn't find what I was really hoping to,
which was a well organzied set of forums with all the normal features one
expects of forums.  However, the site is new and it looks promising.  I'll
keep a eye on it over the next few weeks to see if anything materializes
such that I feel comfortable using it.

The StackOverflow community has started an electronics/robotics forum site,

http://electronics.stackexchange.com/

their metamoderation model eats everything else for lunch. I avoid forums that don't have the moderation and reputation features.... They feel so "90s".  No way to determine the quality of submitters, no way to find the good questions instantly, no RSS feeds, no user-based categorization and collaborative editing, etc...

StackOverflow did for forums what Google did for search engines.


Also, I absolutely despise the "lightbox" treatment of images.   From the silly fade animation and "loading" message to the  breaking  of the "back" button, Lightboxing offers only annoyance.  It's multiplied by the fact that I browse over RDP and i have to watch it paint, and repaint, and repaint, and repaint, and repaint to try to keep up with the fade animation.  I finally get my mouse back about 60 seconds later.

Olin,

Thanks for all the feedback good and bad. To address a couple of your
questions.

This site was developed from the ground up by myself and my partner Joe. We
are both electrical engineers and have been in industry ~10years. we had
this idea to create a community around those in our profession and we have
been working on it for the past 3 years. It sounds like a long time. During
the time we were working on this element-14 came out and we felt like we
were trying to do was different and it didn't deter us.

You didn't mention the toolbox (it is one of the top links) and the
calculator. I would like to know what you think of them.

The community tab is pretty cool as well. It allows you to browse through
community members by interest tags.

We have tried to make a clean look and keep the front page full of content
that a hardware designer would find interesting. I will follow up offline on
the other items below. We do appreciate the feedback and hope to make EEWeb
a positive experience.

Thanks,
Cody

OK, then you should say so, and explain what you get out of it.  There is
nothing wrong with doing something for the purpose of a return, only in
trying to pretend you're not or hiding it.

So who are you guys?  How are you affiliated with DigiKey?  Their logo
appears various places on your site?  You've now made me more uncomfortable
in that I don't know who I'm dealing with and what their motives are.

> You didn't mention the toolbox (it is one of the top links) and the

I didn't notice them before.  They got lost in all the business of the home
page.  I just looked at the toolbox.  I don't have a lot of time to explore
right now, but from first glance it looks really cool.  I'll definitely
remember that one.

I just clicked on "calculator" and see a big fat "=" button.  No thanks.  I
have a real calculator sitting right here next to my keyboard that doesn't
take up precious screen realestate, and it's not one of those dumbed down
lame algebraic ones either.  I see that yours does unit conversions.  That
could possibly be handy, but when I need that I first use Google currently.
Fortunately in electronics you're not converting units most of the time, or
you know the conversion factors off the top of your head.

> The community tab is pretty cool as well. It allows you to browse

Hmm, just tried it.  Sorry, not something I care about.

I'm not looking for people, but good discussions as I said before.

I can see the attempt, but you'll never know what all the people that visit
your site want to see.  Most will be there for a small subset of what you
think they should be.  That means if you throw stuff at them, most of it
will be annoying.  A far better solution is to have a logical and obvious
site organization, then let people find what they want on their own.

> I will follow up offline on the other items below.

I expect lots of people are interested in what such a site could be.  I
don't want to say stuff others can't see.  If it's not public it's too easy
for you to dismiss, and I want to see what others' opinions are too.

Digikey is our exclusive sponsor. You will find on our site their search box
and some of their catalog integrated.

Regarding the calculator. If you like RPN you can click on the RPN button on
the top and operate the calculator in RPN mode. I think if you give
our calculator a try you will like it and you might find yourself using more
than the one on your desk. :)

Thanks,
Cody

Just checked it out myself - looks pretty good (better than element 14 at first glance) but I would also like to know a bit more about who you are, the (apparent) affiliation with Digikey and so on.
Pages load quite quickly, are not too "noisy", and the menus at the top seem reasonably set out.
Will sign up later on and browse about a bit, see how I like it.

Nice touch, I use MiscEl usually (very useful free bit of software that does similar stuff) but sure many will find this handy.

Same here, good discussions/news and info, usually related to whatever problem I'm tacking are generally what I'm interested in on such sites.

Hi Cody,

It looks very nice. I like the toolbox right there on the front page. I
could see myself returning just for that. I poked around the site a bit
and there is enough there that I think you may have something that can
gain momentum. Clearly there has been some thought to go along with the
obvious hard work of putting together a complex site. Everything
rendered properly and quickly on my computer using Firefox 3.6.12 with
adblockplus enabled. The only thing I would like to see is an obvious
"About us" button. I assume you aren't owned by Digi-Key but that too
might need some clarification, especially if you hope for more/different
sponsors in the future.

Best of luck.

Cheerful regards,

Bob

So you are independent of them and make money by selling sponsorships on
your web site.  Seriously, you need to clear all this up.  Again, I've got
no problem with such a arrangement, but I do want to know whom I'm dealing
with and what their motives are.

Yes, Stack Overflow is by far the best Q&A type of forum.  The
electronics SO will improve when more people start asking questions.

So what exactly is "StackOverflow"?  Is it web forum software, a specific
web site, a organization, something else?  And why does it have a name that
is not only dumb and off-putting, but clearly doesn't describe what it is or
does?

All of the above.  I guess they call the software "Stack Exchange".

It started as an answer to http://expertsexchange.com, an awful site
which appears in Google results for a question and then tries to trick
you into registering to see the answer.  The initial site was just for
programming questions. (It was built by a couple of prominent
computer-programming bloggers.) They have since expanded with
subdivisions for other topics, including electronics.

They were trying to monetize it by having some kind of for-pay jobs
board. Not sure how that's going.

Actually that is a plus, as you will probably be properly funded. I have had almost ZERO problems with DK.

I've joined up, so I'll look around closely in the future.

The key to SO is the very very effective moderation and comment paradigm
they use. It (mostly) solves the problems of traditional forums or
mailing lists in that it helps good questions and answers bubble up to
the "top" and be easily found, while letting the cruft automatically be
deprecated.

For non-embedded programming questions, stackoverflow.com is one of the
top places to go. They have sites on other topics (serverfault for
server administration, etc) that are also very popular and effective
repositories of info.

I'm very hopeful the electronics one will take off.

Ah, check it out -- they've added the hyphen.  I guess they got tired

You might want to check http://www.circuitsonline.net (Dutch language only) to see how they done it. This is a very successful site in the Netherlands and (Dutch-speaking) Belgium. It is run by a small group of volunteers, with some funding from advertising.

Hi,

I did not find RSS feed, for articles at least.
Usually I visit pages mostly when my RSS reader reports there is
something new available. That should not be that difficult to
implement.

Well, The calculator is just a gadget from ecalc.com.
And, to be useful for me it needs a AND/OR/XOR function, and convert that result from and to hex, decimal or binary.

Toolbox has a few nice tools for beginners and experts.

You need RSS feeds. An RSS feeds brings new content on your site to the users.

Hi Roel,

eCalc.com was our first web project it is a pretty successful site and a lot
of people use it. We have plans for adding more special function tabs on the
EEWeb calculator and add logic functions is on the list. Did you get a
chance to play with the Base tab on the calculator you can edit any base and
it updates the other values. I find it pretty useful. You should try the
decimal to fraction button on the calculator. d>f I find that function
pretty useful as well.

Thanks,
Cody

It needs to handle more than 32 bits in the binary display.

Is eCalc your site?  That is: do you own it?

Just curious - I purchased the Pro version of eCalc and use it many times each week.  Nicely done.

Hi Dwayne,

Yes ecalc is our site. It was a fun project. I have to give most of the
credit to my partner Joe, he did most of the work. I am glad to hear you
like the pro version. We have had a lot of good feedback. I was surprised,
but many of the users are EEs they like the complex math ability when
dealing with phasors. We have plans to expand this calculator with some new
features when we get a spare moment, we have worked on graphing and it will
be in the next release.

Thanks,
Cody

Thanks for letting us know.

As far as I am concerned, the eCalc website gives you guys some serious cred.  It might be worth doing a couple of things with eeweb: a) Mention on eeweb that your sites are related, and b) Have a link to the eCalc website.

The problem that you have is that both you and eeweb are unknown.  There isn't anything to distinguish you from any other person trying to something similar.

The eCalc website is both known and respected.  It would make sense to let prospective users of eeweb know this isn't your first kick at the cat.

By The Way - being affiliated with Digi-Key is a smart move.  They, too, are known and respected.
