I am interested in applying or inventing technologies and systems for facilitating knowledge exchange and choice making among humans. My primary method is action research embedded in client-purposed projects such that the utility of my ideas and artifacts is critically judged by others. My primary field of endeavor is the creation of systems coupled with the test and evaluation of such systems as fit for purpose. I see an ontology as the infrastructure for knowledge discovery, conveyance, vetting and utilization. Conversely, I see system models and realized systems as situated ontologies.    (319A)

Since graduating in physics from Emporia State University I have enjoyed 20 years with General Electric (Aerospace), 10 with Honeywell (computers and industrial control), then 20 years in a variety of endeavors with Edelbrock (corporate development in high performance automotive), Ascent Logic (corporate development in the first practical software for design of systems), IBM Consulting Group (helping initialize the object technology practice), and as mentor and coach to several high tech startups and turnarounds.    (319B)

Since 2005 I am simultaneously a) co-founder of Kennen Technologies LLC, promulgating the recently patented, massively parallel General Purpose Set Theoretic Processor architecture and process, b) co-founder of OntoPilot LLC, promulgating automatic detection of all faults in algorithms, models and other forms of ontologies, and c) co-founder of Educe LLC evolving an architecture for an education system that "helps kids save themselves as fast as we can" and achieve of a Bachelor degree by age 16.    (319C)

As a Fellow, International Council on Systems Engineering I am leading an effort to unify (achieve interoperability of) the languages used to describe and prescribe systems, systems praxis, systems engineering, error detection and correction and system models.    (319D)

I foresee the Ontolog community as an excellent collaboratory that will accelerate all facets of my work. I intend to make useful contributions to this community.    (2A1B)
