|Klinghoffer's hurt over at EN&V because I appear in Wikipedia and one of their guys is having issues there.|
If Klinghoffer wanted to know about "notability" and Wikipedia, he could have consulted Wikipedia. Ironically, Klinghoffer bringing up my name (again) on EN&V adds another data point for my notability.
And Klinghoffer's sneering is, as usual, off the mark. I have a track record in marine biology that is itself not erased because I have changed my career path. Besides collaborating in published research, this includes professional recognition by the Society for Marine Mammalogy and professional involvement in a NOAA workshop on harm to cetaceans from Navy SONAR. It's almost as if Klinghoffer is assuming that whatever place you end up is the only place you ever could have been, which would probably discomfit any number of DI Fellows were it to be applied uniformly and without hypocrisy.
Additionally, if Klinghoffer had bothered to examine the "Talk" tab for my Wikipedia page, he might have seen that I had noted my change in employment there quite some time ago. It isn't as if I have been keeping it a secret known only to people who can visit LinkedIn. And property managers are noting my current employer, thanks. At least some small part of that has to do with my bringing evolutionary computation to analysis and forecasting there.
ETA: Point on hypocrisy.
Congratulations Wesley. I have to agree that the success of your real estate related application is a noteworthy accomplishment. Feel free to explain more.
And if anyone is wondering what set me off on finances then it has to do with an AT&T family plan that was supposed to cost Laurie almost nothing arriving in her name and totaling $1,084 for two months, just to keep her wireless phone on (already have fast internet) and phone(s)+TV at my daughter's house! There is no way that they can afford that, and I sure can't, regardless of it being what's expected everyone has these days for school or whatever.
There are more than a few questions I've asked Gary up-thread that are still outstanding. If Gary wants info, Gary needs to pony up his own.
Besides which, review of the thread reveals that Gary is completely lost when attempting to discuss evolutionary computation.
That response is so much like Sheldon Cooper the only thing I can think of to add is this:
Sheldon Cooper the most annoying behaviours
I would though love to see your academic rival Günter Bechly (et al.) answer to you, here in your forum. You could make a thread just for them, or they can just jump into mine. That would be fun.
I'll be back to work on the new guidance system. To solve the problem of jerky motion I increased the resolution to 8 time dependent speeds in the positive and 8 speeds in the negative direction. Uses standard physics to approximate standard "opposing muscle" systems. It is not necessary to use the David Heiserman based control system but where included: the origin of its Cellular Level behavior (simple comparator type neural positioning circuit) is better accounted for. To speed things up I may start off without it, in which case the (per David Heiserman) "Main Memory" RAM entirely becomes the wave vectored Spatial Memory that also addresses and stores data like a standard RAM. Adding a Heiserman based system for the Left/Right and Forward/Reverse muscle control would (after training) result in the exact same behavior, just take a little time to develop.
Now stop taking yourself too seriously, lighten up.
The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.
