iwigglesworth self-describes as 

Geologist, Geophysicist, whatever…

Nota Bene!
Do NOT expect a steady stream of geology and science-oriented posts. Those are few and far between, but they are worth the wait. I have learned to appreciate the value of an educated, experienced subject matter expert in any applied scientific field who writes with humor and nary a sign of ulterior motive e.g. advocacy.

Steve Jobs could have presided over post WWII British shipbuilding and not have arrested its decline in the face of low cost foreign competition. Why does this matter? It matters because false recipes don’t help anyone. There is no magic formula. Books on Steve aren’t going to help. Most of the people who write these books couldn’t manage their way out of a paper bag… So ignore the hagiographic analysis and do your best to time the tide.”
