The [recent] History of Technology I began programming computers about 1965. Since then, I've worked across manufacturers with things as diverse as global communications, Fortune Top 10 plantwide systems analysis, creating library routines for supermarket shelves' lists of package ingredients, working up seniors' pharma NSAID osteoarthiritis analgesic FDA approval field trials, & on.
I worked years "consulting" with WHO & UNICEF on issues of health & mental health. I am a founding member on the United Nations NGO Committee for Mental Health. I signed on to the General Assembly's turn of the millenia "Millenium Goals" supporting prenatal health care & maternal health. I'd continue on.
I'm a proud member of the NY Academy of Sciences Neuroscience Section AND History & Philosophy of Sciences Section[plus Math].
I will only say one thing on the internet & security. As with the whole world there are lots of very bad -- & very good people to run into; just because they are hidden behind some computer code changes nothing. Reply
