>Have any of you so called ARS critics created anything original and productive
Six patents, several products which sold in the range of several million dollars. >How many book shave you written?
Parts of about 10, geophysics, aerospace, space agriculture, metallurgy, heat sinks for use in space, ones on memetics and nanotechnology. Long list. You can find some of them on the web. >How many institutes have you opened?
L-5 Society now National Space Society. Been on the board of several others. >How many anti drug programs have you implemented?
Not anti drug. Folks abuse drugs too much, they die. Next generation is more resistant. >How many inner city kids (or any kids) have you taught to read?
At least a dozen. Back in the 70's I read the massive Tolkin works to a bunch of neighborhood kids--twice. The kids read them with me over my shoulder. >What have you ever created, produced and delivered that has made this world a
>better place to live in?
Front end systems for cable modems, printers for CD-ROMs, jukebox robotics, insurance processing systems, laser scanners, point of sale terminals, electronic systems for industrial applications such as interfaces for coordinate measuring machines, motor protective phase sensing systems, power monitors for 1000 hp industrial motors, industrial software for an oil refinery, computer interfaces for mining, electronic components such as vector adders, quadrature oscillators, RMS modules, multipliers (patent on that one), type analysis graphs for geophysical interpretations. Helped find a few mineral deposites, and helped build a TV transmitter station just out of high school. What have you done? Keith Henson
