About this Blog
Physics and all of science is fun. This is a blog on interesting Physics in the media and so far really about DeflateGate.
I have a Ph.D. in Physics from M.I.T, 1982. I’ve co-authored a number of scientific papers, mostly in atomic physics, but it does include one in atmospheric physics, which is closely related to this particular topic.
I am probably more well known as a software entrepreneur, having started up a number of small software companies.
Although I went into start-up software companies after post-doc’ing at M.I.T. for a few years, I never lost, and still have a strong interest in science and understanding how things work. When I see a problem, and not all the facts seem to add up to the solution at hand, I tend to work at it, and work it until a solution appears that might explain all the facts.
