Introduction I am a specialist in live video streaming over the internet. My interest in streaming came out of necessity. In 2001 as a corporate trainer for a large system integrator I found my budget reduced so greatly it would no longer support live classroom teaching for the Microsoft technical classes we were delivering. Along with several colleagues I helped to create and patent the first effective system for delivering complex, instructor led technical classes via the internet. My interest has led me to work with video, encoders, equipment manufacturers and broadcasters for much of the last 12 years.
Interests Literary Influences: Heinlein, Inherit the Wind, Mark Twain (Letters from the Earth), C S Lewis (Perelandra), Cyrus B Fletcher, Fiddler on the Roof (while you’re in the vicinity Lord), Isaac Asimov (on The Bible), Dune, Peretti (This Present Darkness)
