What's The Deal With the Pumpkin On the Cover?

Is this week's cover pumpkin real or computer generated? Well, it’s a little bit of both. This year’s tech issue happened to fall on the Wednesday before Halloween, so we wanted a cover that combined the two themes. Our first thought was to carve the Tech Jam spaceman logo into a pumpkin, but we took it a step further in the tech direction and had it laser-etched instead, thanks to Michael Perrault from ExactBuilt in Underhill.

We went techie, too, in the way we lit up the pumpkin: with a refrigerator lightbulb instead of a candle.

See you at the Vermont Tech Jam, this Friday and Saturday in the Borders building in Burlington!
