NULLA DIES SINE LINEA. Filosofía barata, historias, historietas, mecánica, moralejas, chamullos, relatos absurdos, la vida de un vago, cosas de Arica, literatura, música, pornografía, política, física, cocina regional, minas, copete y cosas por el estilo. The awesome, absurd and often bored adventures of our Man of Mistery in Arica, from the trenches, in the Northern Front. Sacar a mil, sacar a mil. Streams of brilliance often springs from boredom. Atendido por su propio dueño, dentre nomás.

Cerrado por duelo

No lo conocía. Mis respetos para el creador de los blogs, sin los cuales jamás habría podido leer excelentes opiniones de gran gente.

Dr. Jerry Pournelle received his degrees from the University of Washington in Seattle. He joined the Boeing Company as a Human Factors Engineer and Aviation Psychologist, and headed the Human Factors Laboratory, where they did pioneer work on astronaut heat tolerance in extreme environments, as well as experimental tests for certifying the passenger oxygen system for the Boeing 707.

He later joined a design and analysis group as a Systems Analyst where he was involved in strategic analysis of proposed new weapons systems. In 1964, he joined the Aerospace Corporation in San Bernardino, California to become Editor of Project 75, a major USAF study of all ballistic missile technology which identified and recommended USAF investment in technologies required to build the missile force which would be required in 1975. When Project 75 was completed he became manager of several advanced concept studies. He later joined North American Space division where he took part in the Apollo program and general operations research as well as still classified studies.

The Strategy of Technology (1970), by Stefan Possony, Jerry Pournelle, and Col. Francis X. Kane became a textbook at the USAF Academy and two national war colleges.

In November 1980 following the election, he chaired the committee that wrote the Space and Defense policy papers for the incoming transition team; this committee (Citizen’s Advisory Council on National Space Policy) was
continued, by White House request, after the inauguration, and with Gen. Graham developed a policy of Strategic Defense, called “Star Wars” by opponents, which became the Strategic Defense Imitative. In 1989 the
committee developed the SSX concept, which became the DCX, the first successful reusable vertical landing rocket craft.

Red Heroin, an action/adventure mystery (Berkeley Books), his first novel, was published in 1968. He has been a full-time writer since 1972, as well as successfully managing political campaigns; science columnist for the
National Catholic Press; Analog SF Magazine columnist; and Science Editor/Columnist of Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine. After 1982 his BYTE Magazine column was one of the two best known columns in the computer
industry, continuing from 1980 to 2008.

He has 5 Hugo and 3 Nebula Nominations, and was the first winner of the Campbell Award (previously known as the Best New Writer Hugo). He has authored or co-authored at least seven national best-sellers, of which
Lucifer’s Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle is probably the best known, having been 21 weeks on the New York Times best-selling list. He is working on at least four books now.

I can make some claim to this being The Original Blog and Daybook. I certainly started keeping a day book well before most, and long before the term “blog” or Web Log was invented. BIX, the Byte information exchange, preceded the Web by a lot, and I also had a daily journal on GE Genie. Both of those would have been considered blogs if there had been any such term. All that was long before the World Wide Web.

I note that a Google Search on “Blog” doesn’t show me, at least not in the first 10 or so pages, but then I long insisted I don’t “blog” because I find the word ugly. But I have a fair amount of traffic and a quality readership, so I can hardly complain.

A este viejito yo lo leía al final de la revista Byte, en mis años de estudiante. Era una columna super interesante, dentro de la autoridad y leyenda que fue en temas tecnológicos la Byte.

Era una enciiclopedia viva, dos doctorados, asesor de Reagan, de Grinwitch, profesor en West Point, escritor de best sellers en ciencia ficciñon con varios preios, "un generalista" decía acerca de si mismo, en Byte los pusieron a cmpetir con Dvoryak (o como se escriba) pero ni se le acercaba.

Escribió un texto buenísimo llmado "how to get my job" donde daba consejos sobre como redactar, a mi me inspiró ene. Después que cerró Byte siguió escribiendo pero su blog era lo principal, esribió hasta un ía antes de morirse en aparece su última entrada, un día antes de morirse.

hace como 5 o 7 años tuvo un cáncer al cerebro, la quimio y radioterapia -por lo que contaba- lo dejaron mal, nunca se recuperó del todo aunque el cáncer desapareció quedó con muchas enfermedades por daños en el sistema inmunitario parece
