Great Geek Dinner

12/31/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

I went to Robert Scoble and Shel Israel's (co-authors of Naked Conversations) Geek Dinner at the Cheesecake factory on Friday night. I had a great time, with fantastic conversations, which I'll discuss in the morning. :P :p

Dave Winer captured the event and has the set up on Flickr, including one of Marc Canter with me in the foreground, looking somewhat dæmonic.

From the conversations tonight, I did come to a realization about one difference between the first awakening of the Internet and Web2.0. The Internet went from academic to government to corporate and then to consumer use. Web2.0 is starting with the consumers; once the philosophies, techniques and technologies are proved out in the public playing field, they move into corporate structures.

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.
