eBooks

I have truly come to enjoy reading story books novels on my Palm using the Palm Digital eReader. Now, I haven't stopped buying good, old fashioned hard bound books. But eBooks allow me to enjoy the content without actually cracking open the book, endangering it with coffee droplets or spilled brandy.

Of course, the disaster of dropping my Tungsten into the tub is far and away more devastating than dropping the book. 88|

Right now, I'm reading the last novel in Robin Hobb's series that started with the Farseer trilogy, went to the Liveship Traders trilogy, and is ending with the Tawny Man trilogy. She is a magnificent author. It is very rare that an author can make me so empathetic with her characters. And that each character is so richly filled-out and distinct from every other character.

And of course, I wasn't reading the story in this meeting, nor blogging on my Palm. I'm taking notes. :D Mobile and wireless tools make things much more interesting.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
