The American artist Andy Warhol once said that everyone will eventually have their 15 minutes of fame. The closest I came was being on the cover of Test & Measurement magazine in November 2004. OK, admittedly T&M is not exactly People Magazine, but 1 or 2 pocket protector-wearing test engineers may have noticed the cover while shopping for a new digital oscilloscope or multimeter.
The title of the article is "Sound Science: Musical tastes differ, but tests show that listeners respond with the consistency of spectrum analyzers to loudspeaker performance."
The article explains the science behind loudspeaker R&D at Harman International and is written in a very approachable style for the audio layperson. You can read it here.
