You can either choose your Thanksgiving dinner seating with this flowchart or bypass all that confusion with some cool place cards.

Story

Some engineers have never dated a real person. They've tried to, but it's hard for them to appreciate that real people don't necessarily use data to make decisions -- especially when it comes to love. Perhaps their most embarrassing moments come when they try to mimic what non-engineers do in order to make themselves more attractive. This mirrors some of the little issues that the Google brand has had over the years in becoming, well, human. When you've spent you life believing that facts are everything, it's hard to imagine that people might prefer, oh, rounded corners or that ephemeral thing sometimes known as taste. Over the last forty +- years I have been developing educational program. My PH.D is in Consumer psychology targeting Education. I ran a lab in the early 70's in Alaska targeting the Native Alaskans. Designing, evaluating and distributing educational material to the villages using ATS6 satellite and air drop of cores ware via small bush aircraft. due to my success, I was offered a research lab at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan. I founded the Micro Computer Development Lab" in ME Dept. My lab looked at "the toy computers" as they were referred to by the University's Computer Dept. TSR 80, Apple, Commodore, TI Rainbow etc. My pet projects were education oriented. Yes I worked on helping to develop the Internet with ARPA. I, also was involved with AI development on the "Toy computers - PC's)" to the dismay of the Computer Department. My lab was supported by some of the best and brightest students at the U of M through an independent study program that was offered them using my lab.
Introduction
Retired?? Research Scientist. Can a scientist ever retire?  Can't stop thinking and developing something new.
As a child and teem I: Received my ham radio license at 14. My mother thought that I was going to burn down the house with all my experiments in my basement workshop (ham shack). I designed a 7 foot tall robotic a wolf for a school Satey-Hauckens day dance that could tell your sex by pushing a button.(hint it used a then new technology, thermisters on a Wheatstone bridge) I won the Kodak Junior film makers award at 13 for a 30 min film "Spying for fun and profit".

I received an FCC first Phone license at 17,

Over the last forty +-  years I have been developing educational program. My PH.D is in Consumer psychology targeting Education. 

I ran a lab in the early 70's in Alaska targeting the Native Alaskans. Designing, evaluating  and distributing educational material to the villages using ATS6 satellite and air drop of cores ware via small bush aircraft. due to my success,

I was offered a research lab at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.   I founded the Micro Computer Development Lab" in ME Dept. My lab looked at "the toy computers" as they were referred to by the University's Computer Dept.  TSR 80, Apple, Commodore, TI Rainbow etc. My pet projects were education oriented. Yes I worked on helping to develop the Internet with ARPA. 

I, also was involved with AI development on the "Toy computers - PC's)" to the dismay of the Computer Department. My lab was supported by some of the best and brightest students at the U of M through an independent study program that was offered them using my lab.

I worked for the Govt. I was actively involved in running a series of research labs. On smart cards, "Office of the Future" , Remote Work Systems, 

Standards bodies and key development programs I have worked on:

  • Stop motion motion picture stand automation.
  • Motion control systems for the Motion Picture industry.

  • Computer aided drafting (Autocad 1.0-8)
  • Computer animation systems, (Autocad)
  • Computer Video editing (Edit Droid)
  • Automation of automotive dynamiter lab. (Ford Motor)
  • Development of video command and control network (Sony S-net).
  • Development of the first ATM machines and their network ( Tandy copr, Bourls Computer now Unisis, Zenith electronics ( data and video on mid split broadband.) ) The test system was in Ann Arbor Mi. The ATM system required live, remote teller to dispense money remotely. *Due to Mich. Branch Banking Laws then. Not only could you get money you could: Buy tickets for sports events, Buy stamps, Check grades, read e-mail & more.
I am an film and TV tec. person too.
  • Ran the film documentation dept for the U of Alaska, Fairbanks campus for the Alaskan Pipeline.
  • Produced numerous training and informational films/videos.
  • Been screwed by clients out of a lot of $$. 
  • Shot in the following formats: 8 & super 8mm,16mm, super 16,w/transfer to 35, 35mm 70mm, I-max. Many in anamorphic. Video in 1/2" 1", quad. Engineered and built 4 video trucks (3-40' and 1- 28') 
  • Was one the first Stedy-cams. 
  • I was one of the first engineers/designers for the PTL Network. With them I engineered/designed 7 TV stations across the U.S.  
After the PTL Deborah I went into work on technology research labs.

My true love as a hobby is wood turning. It came in handy when working for the gov. I would come home from talking with people of power who were who were interested in their lobbiest then their jobs. I found that I could mount a 2" log on my lathe and making a tooth pic and my anger would go away.
