Doctorate in Theoretical Biology. Interested in long-term trends as robotics replaces personal computers as the cutting edge of tech. Interest includes the ultimate roles of hobby vs companies vs government/university robotics, also robotic sensors. Experience mostly in C programming of micros (Mac) during 1980s, porting statistical software from mainframe to micros in the late 1980s, and developing web-based programs in Perl, PHP, ASP in the 1990s-2000s. Teach Internet/web programming at the Art Institute of CA, Los Angeles. At present have only created simple hobby robotic systems using Mindstorms.

Concerning the location of "Robot Valley" in the Robotics Trends website (http://www.roboticstrends.com/displayarticle432.html) - the actual gist of the article is not to determine where it will be, but to rule out a few places. The current state of development shows California lagging in nearly all areas when adjusted for population. In particular, Silicon Valley seems least likely to be the least likely site for a 'robot valley' - my guess is either the corridor around CMU or the Glendale/Pasadena region in Los Angeles.
