Story

Innovative Entrepreneurial Dreamer
Introduction
Hey, I'm me.   Dig physics, mostly the classical stuff that models the way the world works in a macro state.

I am helping the Energy From Thorium Foundation change the legislation to allow Thorium Breeders to be fully developed and stand a chance in the open market.  Follow me at @ThorFoundation on Twitter and on facebook Energy from Thorium.

I am working on a line of camera accessories.  Hopefully will be looking for investment soon.

I am working on a multi legged robot.  #Excited. #arduino.

I am a Account Support Consultant for Fleet Customers for NACCO Materials Handling Group and its a fun and challenging job so far.  Lots of SQL queries.  

I'm a Beta user of G+ and a love it,  hopefully I will be around much more than I have been.

Bragging rights
Russ Wilcox has left me a voicemail. A Mensan. Aspiring entrepreneur/inventor. I once asked +Vic Gundotra for $1 Billion dollars in a hangout, and his response was 'I will circulate this around internally!"

#darkmatter and #darkenergy were always #physics placeholders like #ether and #etherwind. An idea to think against and ultimately disprove.

Have we done so?

Excellent article. Puts things in historical context. Cuts the drama. Nice job by Moira Weigel.

Geoffrey gets the #millennial conversation all wrong and sounds like a cigarette ad with doctors recommending the brand.

Seriously, you want us to accept a world that isn't 'fair' because it's status quo? Even mentions just dealing with the #genderPayGap

Our generation is a force to be reckoned with and you under estimate the necessity of progress in your old age. The way your generation handled things was a step forward. Do not forget to afford us the chance to continue where you decided you'd had enough.

You are on the wrong side of history and growing irrelevant.

#millennialRant 
This all-too-common four letter word betrays a sadly naïve perception of how the business world works.
