About meI play roles of product manager, technology lead, and technical architect.

Depending on the project needs I also get involved as a technical architect, usability specialist, or software engineer.

MIT graduate in Cognitive Science, worked on robotics at Carnegie-Mellon. I developed software professionally in C, Lisp, CLU, HyperCard, C++, and Java. Consulting projects included usability, software engineering, and business process design work.

More recent focus on web site design and providing guidance and mentoring for large scale enterprise technology developments.

My profile photo is from 'Sealab 2020'. That TV series gave me the idea, as an impressionable youth of the 1970s, that I'd spend my future living in an underwater city.

About my libraryMy library (Books and DVDs) reflect my interests and experiences in:

* Science and technology
* Technology in education (simulation / constructionism)
* Futures Studies - trend analysis and forecasting
* Usability - human factors, GUI and web design
* Cognitive science - modeling how mammals think
* Computer Science and AI (focus on vision and robotics)
* Electronics
* Software engineering, programming, and hypertext

Other themes include:
- Business models, trends, and fallacies
- Design patterns, object technology
- Forecasting tools, system dynamics
- Science and technology adoption
- Science fiction (dystopian and utopian)
