Let"s just put an end to this: have a hacker get the info and send it to the media. Hackers break into Gov't and corporate systems all the time, so where's Robin Hood hacker when we need one?

Dr. Harold White: Faster than Light: Warp Drive | SpaceVision
Faster than light—Warp Drive—Is it possible to travel faster than light? NASA's Advanced Propulsion Lead, Dr. Harold White, has modified a previously unsuccessful faster than light (FTL) model called the Alcubierre Drive, and has successfully proven that faster than light travel might just be possible. Dr. White discusses the hard facts behind this technology as well as the roadblocks to exploring our closest stars.

Introduction
Tech industry jargon has got to improve! The term "Pivot" is constant and so is "social media" but if I hear "SO" as the first word in response to a question one more time, I'm going to halt it with a new Mckinsey-ism. We need new buzz words!

Enterprise sales executive, spending time with some of the big kahunas in technology, Pharma, Finance, Healthcare, Entertainment and other verticals.

My blog on sales, sales management is askbusinesscoach (all words together)

Specialities: ERP, BI, Predictive Analytics, Big Data, Mobility, Some Cloud, Data Fusion & FMV (full motion video), GeoSpacial, LBS, Personalization, Security (logical and physical)....
