Hello, I'm most interested in the history of technology. I'm also interested in emerging technologies, innovative companies, and creative individuals. I think it's important to accurately document this stuff, in no small part because it's often disputed and it becomes harder to set the record straight as time passes. Despite that so much information is being stored on the Internet, there are still accuracy concerns, and most history is subject to interpretation.

Articles I have created:

History of smart antennas


Bucky-Potter grid



The Marfan Foundation
