This blog is mainly about science. I love science. I have a PhD in Optics from the University of Rochester and an MBA from the University of San Francisco. I have worked as an industrial physicist and engineering manager in R&D and new product development of optical components and systems. I enjoy open source scientific computing and learning all sorts of maker technologies and plan to talk about those here as well. I will also periodically mix it up with other non-tech stuff I enjoy (like my English bulldog Hank). I can be reached at jdcorless at gmail dot com.
