Achievements

I finally discovered what I wanted to be when I grew up - an Intelligence Engineer.

Standing at the very start of my lifes work was quite an experience. The motivation that I felt was frightening. There are scores of intellectual giants who have worked on this task and their contributions were both daunting and inadequate. The likelyhood of making a contribution of my own was infintesimal. But the prospect was intoxicating none-the-less. There was not a moment to loose. See Intelligence Engineering.
