About meEngineer, hardware/software designer, physicist. I've worked with government, military/paramilitary, universities and the private sector. There is a fair amount of information on the book website concerning myself and my involvement with the South African military as well as many documents relating to the 1987 Helderberg plane crash and the US/Iraq arms deals for the invasion of Kuwait.
About my libraryMy library is quite massive (never enough time to scan and list them all), however, I have a very limited number of fictional works (I'll put those up first), I deal in the real. My shelves are lined with academic books, research papers, journals, software manuals and data books from all of the integrated circuit manufacturers. I have an original Tesla from the 1800's, and scores of works written by Kip Thorne, Michio Kaku, Einstein, Bohr, Hawking, etc. Since my interests lay in the pragmatic approach and commercial application of advanced physics and technology, my libraries reflect the same.
