Profile Information

About me:
I'm an IT consultant and systems engineer looking for tools for evaluating arguments. My dream tool would be one that's as easy to use for deconstructing arguments as Excel is for creating spreadsheets. A tool that will help people expose unquestioned assumptions and internal contradictions; a tool that will enable one person to think critically, or many people to collaborate, on both questions of fact and questions of value.

I have a PhD in Engineering, and an MS in BioMedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, and a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. I worked for many years first designing digital signal processing hardware & software, and later doing systems engineering at Bell Labs and it's offspring, where I was awarded five patents.

I now work as an independent consultant on IT projects with a focus on business process modeling and reengineering. I also enjoy technical writing and have published articles on a wide variety of topics ranging from plug-in hybrids, to terabit networks, and most recently on smart power grids.

Welcome, Tim. Your "dream tool" description is as succinct and clear as any I've seen. (Nice to have another engineering type on board too.)

Hi, Tim.

Great to see you here - and thanks for joining.

If you haven't already discovered it, there are some substantive discussions underway on the GSm wiki that may will interest you too.

Yes! I've had an idea spiraling around in my mind for years, two actually, as possible mediated ways to do that, or enhance the process of doing this. But, alas, I'm not a geek and so have done nothing with this. Just joined the network and it has reinvigorated those visions. So, we'll see. I'd need to collaborate with someone professionally/technically competent and also personally honest to do anything with this. Glad to be refocused on my great love of dialogue! Lynne

Hi Tim, thanks for the friend request! I noticed you made a comment in your request about yoomoot but I accepted your friend request before I had finished reading it and now it seems to have gone forever! Your "About me" is really interesting. How is your quest for evaluating arguments going?
