I have a Bachelors degree from the US Air Force Academy and a Masters degree in Computer Science from Stanford. I was in the computer business for a long time until March 2020 when I became unemployed due to the coronavirus situation and seriously reduced economic activity at Mobileframe, where I had joined the technical staff in November 2015. They have a great product and I hope they are able to weather the health emergency.
Prior to Mobileframe I was a software engineer at Iron Speed where we were constantly improving our extraordinary web application generation tool, Iron Speed Designer, until being forced to close on September 1, 2015 by mounting legal fees necessary to combat a patent troll. Before joining Iron Speed I was the General Manager of PC Crisis Line, where I spent most of the time helping people with their computer problems.
I began my career in the computer business with the US Air Force where I was a programmer, systems analyst, and manager of computer programming with the SR-71 program at Beale AFB. The SR-71 is a great airplane, having many interesting anecdotes about its exploits. This is typical: Major-Brian-Shul-I-loved-that-jet, and here's a great interview with a pilot and one of the many documentaries on YouTube,
Following the Air Force, I was a research programmer for Stanford University and then became an independent small business and programming consultant. During that time I was a principal in Teknowledge, Inc., one of the first AI knowledge engineering companies. I was also a Boy Scout leader for many years, coached youth sports, and have run for public office as a Libertarian. You can see more on my profiles at FaceBook, and LinkedIn. Today both Kathy and I are retired and enjoying focussing on our family.
There are a number of web sites that I have worked on:
