There are so many things right here but it's bittersweet. Like this line "It’s all part of taking a chance and expanding man’s horizons. The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and we’ll continue to follow them.” Brilliant but I feel like that's not us anymore. Can you imagine this happening today (from either side) "House Speaker Tip O’Neill (D) was known for working with Reagan rather than against him, but even his compliments were over the top." A Speaker of The House, as tough a negotiator for his party as ever there was but he was KNOWN for working with President from across the aisle. This is what makes me sad. Sad for this country. That we have become so small and so petty and our fights are over trivial things and our candidates are precisely what we are worthy of but they are not what the potential of this nation deserves. It saddens me that the next moves into space, in the legacy of the Challenger, will not be made by the U.S - will not be made by a nation working together for an impossible goal - will not be made by all of us believing in something bigger than ourselves - it will be made by companies. That's fine but companies have different goals than countries and the discoveries will rightly benefit the companies that make them but if our nation made them, they could benefit the world. That's a worthy legacy for the souls of Challenger, that's our challenge - to be as big as they were.

Introduction
I'm an anthropologist, historian, and a technologist. I've worked in the Pentagon, as a consultant and with Fortune 500 compaines. I'm fascinated with the intersection of technology and culture.  I tweet incessantly and take a lot of pictures with my iPhone. Hi. 

There is a lot about me about there.. @moehlert on twitter, there's a whole bunch there...I have this about.me page  and a LinkedIn profile, I've blogged here for a number of years, and I have Scoop.it site going that I'm really liking.
