Building machines since the 1940s, programing computers since the 1960s,
I now build computer systems to monitor and control people & things - 
offices,  factories,  warehouses, instruments and processes.

Overview
Our universe is full of processes - procedures

Some processes come from nature:
stars make atoms, atoms make molecules, molecules make cells, cells make us - you and me.

Other processes come from us:
children make sentences, mothers bake cookies, factories make cars. 

All of us can do some procedures:
most children learn to make sentences, some do arithmetic, then calculus.
Other procedures require more work and experience.

Starting about age 8 in my father’s machine shop after WWII, I swept floors,  
Then built machines by learning from the experience of others. 
From there I went to physics and then computing. ...

3 -   RESEARCH : Looking for clues - about Thinking, Talking, Computing

About clues: 

In the 1930s Enrico Fermi escaped the Nazis with an experiment which exhibited strange behavior when moved from a marble table in Rome to a wooden table in Cambridge. It was a clue to slow neutrons and the secret to nuclear chain reactions. It took someone as brilliant as Fermi to understand what the clue meant.

Now, we have some clues to thinking, talking and computing, mostly speech pathologies like aphasia. Are there others? Is there more? Can we understand what the clues mean?
