If you want ideas what circles to put me in, you might start with these:
The first 2 decades of my life are no longer important ... I was immature, but lucky to stay out of major trouble.
There are lots of other interesting details about me, that will not get posted here.
While I am an avid reader book-aholic with tens of thousands of books in my personal collection, my rate of reading has diminished with other distractions like The Internet, and C-Span on TV.
I was in DC audience when Martin Luther King Jr gave his "I have a Dream" speech, as I began to identify & act on what was to become important in my life.
In the 1970's I designed some science fiction games. I may try to bring my time travel simulation to the modern social networks, some time in our future.
When 9/11 came, I shifted from heavy interest in how to improve computer security to "what can I do" to help national security, but have shifted back to cyber security interests now.
Currently I am extremely interested in Drones, and would love to have people tag me when posting anything about them.
See my BS (Blog Sayings) from when I had time for that: Radio, Ryze,
I have had a career in excess of 50 years working for (mainly) family owned companies which used some IBM computer to run their business. Over the years I gravitated from 1620 and 1440, with 80 column punched cards and paper tape, with programs via wiring boards when a "bug" was a squashed insect, to a multitude of S/-variants and a few AS/-variants such as M36.
Late in 2009 I became semi-retired.
Since the Haiti Jan-12 quake, I have been consumed helping the helpers, via Linked In HEDR group (Haiti Earthquake Disaster Relief), a volunteer think tank. Y"all can locate most of my Haiti (and other) Disaster Research Notes:
Linked In (see box net files), Facebook, and Google Plus links in posts, Haiti Rewired, Rebuild Haiti Better, Haiti+ Disaster Recovery Research Prizm and Scribd
Here is reason for above research sharing:
The big international NGOs have
astronomical gaps between what they trying to do, and what they actually
are able to accomplish.
These gaps are tried to be filled by thousands of
mom+pop NGOs, some of them grass roots in Haiti, some of them small
groups from nations all over our world.
These are people who are good with
their hands, or with medicine, or a host of other things, but they are
not good at figuring out all they need to know to make a go of it. They
have tons of questions.
Well I am an answer man, I find out for them, as a pro bono researcher.
But many of these groups are asking the same questions.
So I package the answers in my research notes, share with all the mom+pop groups, and potential new volunteers.
General Trouble-Shooting: I am using XP with Firefox 5.x. The system on end of VPN is AS/400 model 170 using BPCS 405 cd.
I do not do Mobile Chat nor IM. I do e-mail, blogs, essays, forums, comments, share research notes.

PS. I believe in the right of self-defense of people, irrespective of their religion culture gender gender-preference, etc. If you believe in genocide of Jews, or Gay people, or women, or any other group, and say so to me, I will probably end up blocking you.
