Waiting to be a Juror

04/18/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Personal Life

Wendy and I are side-by-side using those Gateway Profiles. I'm reading and writing blogs and checking email; Wendy is doing a Y!crossword and checking email.

Jeanie & Christine [our "wardens", no very nice folk really] called one group of 85 to go through the jury selection process about an hour ago. Since then, nothing. Christine just thanked us for waiting so patiently and promised not to keep us any longer than need be.

Wendy's a bit disappointed. She was looking forward to be seeing the judicial system from the inside. She's never served and this is only her second time to be called. Her excitement reminds me of the first time I hired her, 20 years ago. It looks like she still brings that enthusiasm to her life and work. That's fantastic.

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.
