It's not every month (maybe never?) that we get humor and thoughtful insight during a cartoon caption contest, but such was the case in March.
Overall, there were 145 comments posted in last month's contest that featured an autonomous car crashing into (well, not literally) a bedroom. As usual, it was difficult picking the winners but here they are:
"Uh, How Did It Get Up the Stairs!?!"
First place and the winner of a $150 Amazon gift card: "Uh, how did it get up the stairs!?!" by mhhf1ve.
Second place, $75 Amazon gift card: "Peeb peeb!!" "They programmed that darn car backwards!" by srufolo1.
Third place, $50 Amazon gift card: "This is why I told you to walk the car BEFORE we went to bed," by elizabethv.
Aditya Kishore will be judging the next cartoon caption contest, which should be up shortly. Thanks and good luck in the next contest.

In this Telco Transformation radio show, IHS Markit's Michael Howard will talk about the network domains that carriers are targeting for SDN, the top SDN services that are driving revenues and the deployment barriers this year. Howard will also address whether carriers are embracing open source or using vendor-specific implementations.
MEF is working to define, deliver, and certify dynamic communications services that are orchestrated across a global ecosystem of automated, virtualized and interconnected networks. In this radio show, MEF CTO Pascal Menezes talks about the challenges and the solutions that his organization is working on and provides a preview of the MEF17 conference in November.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is a key component of services providers' virtualization game plans and AT&T and Level 3 Communications have been at the forefront of its adoption.
In this webinar, Andrew Dugan, CTO of Level 3 Communications, and Amy Wheelus, Vice President of Cloud and D2 Platform Integration at AT&T, will discuss how their companies have leveraged SDN within their networks, services and applications. Some of the key areas that will be covered include:
Automation, APIs and lifecycle service orchestration
The continued evolution of SDN-based solutions and SDN in networks, including SD-WAN, dynamic cloud connections and scalable Ethernet and security solutions.
