Electrical Engineer and private investor. I reside in the heart of Miyazaki, Nippon (Japan) about half time, and in my 727 home in Oregon, America, the other half (AirplaneHome.com, HikoukiIe.com, AirplaneHomeV2.com). I'm 67 years of age (as of 2017).
I seem to be chronically incapable of conveying concepts concisely. For those who suffer through my rambling, redundant, and serpentine rhetoric, my sincere apologies. I perceive that my composition desperately needs to be more efficient, so I'll try to make it so.
I'm also incompetent in most facets of the technology areas I invest in. I'm a good circuit design engineer, but I know precious little about integrated circuit fabrication technology and many other specialities. So I depend upon others, mostly here on Seeking Alpha, who have direct experience in areas where I have little or none. The bread which appears on my table (and the jetliner which resides in my yard) arrived largely on the shoulders of those who contribute here and others from past times, and I'm genuinely grateful for their energetic and community minded generosity.
In an effort to improve perspective, I try to keep two key long term cyber system goals in mind as I try to judge whether a firm possesses a clear vision of the future. The first is the Smoking Hairy Golf Ball, an idealized liquid helium cooled semiconductor sphere with wire connections on its surface, envisioned long ago as the final stage of evolution for maximum performance solid state electronics systems. The second, and most important, is a HAL-9000 algorithm, that is, conscious life creating software. Setting aside considerations of whether it's wise to pursue that second goal, firms which steer themselves toward either or both of these goals, in the context of developing their more ordinary products, are in my view likely to be lucrative. And for the record, I suspect a HAL-9000 algorithm will prove to be wonderfully positive for humanity. If we develop and manage the technology wisely and compassionately...
In my view some firms are moving, step by tiny step, toward one or both of these milestones.
I'm eager to hear constructive and civil criticism, so please don't hesitate to offer your suggestions.

Keith began his career as a research scientist (developmental biology, biochemistry, molecular biology) at the Australian National University, University of Oxford (UK), the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry (Munich, Germany) and finally Macquarie University (Sydney) where he held a Chair in Biology and established the Centre for Analytical Biotechnology. Pioneering the area of proteomics (with Marc Wilkins in his group coining the term), Keith established the world’s first government-funded Major National Proteomics Facility (Australian Proteome Analysis Facility) which was involved with industrialising protein science.
Keith left academe with his team to found Proteome Systems Ltd in 1999 to commercialise proteomics. The company had a strong focus on intellectual property, engineering/technology and bioinformatics. As CEO he led the company to ASX listing in 2004. Since 2005 Keith has been involved in new business development in biotech, e-health and other emerging technologies. Keith sees climate change and sustainable development as a major issue for humankind and also a major business disruptor/risk and opportunity.
Keith holds a Bachelor Agr Science from the University of Melbourne and a PhD from the Australian National University. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences & Engineering and received an AM (Member of the Order of Australia) for services to the Biotechnology Industry. He has received various industry awards including an Innovation Hero Medal from the Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering.
With 300 scientific papers and many patents written, Keith has a clear view of innovation in the Biotechnology and Climate/Renewable Energy space. He is not a financial advisor but his perspective adds relevance to decision-making concerning feasibility and investment in technology innovation.
I'm a lawyer and accountant who's devoted over three decades to advising clients on complex corporate finance, disclosure and reporting, and corporate governance issues. I've held board seats and executive suite positions in the mining, oil and gas and battery industries, and served as issuer's counsel for several SEC registration statements. My decades of experience give me a unique insider's view of the public and private equity markets and an encyclopedic knowledge of the business and technical issues I write about.
Over the last decade, I've earned a global following for my articles on the energy storage and alternative energy sectors. I've contributed to Seeking Alpha, The Street, NASDAQ.com, AltEnergyStocks, InvestorIntel and Batteries International Magazine.
I'm a 1979 graduate of the Notre Dame Law School and a 1976 graduate of the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. I was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 1980 and licensed to practice as a CPA in 1981.
My diverse experience in corporate finance, natural resource development and energy storage give me a unique and sometimes unsettling perspective on the technical, economic and supply chain challenges facing the battery industry.

Michael Murphy grew up in Newark, Delaware, which a sign at the city limits proclaimed: “The Educatoinal Center of the State.” After graduating from the public schools he earned an A.B. cum laude from Harvard College and began working as a COBOL mainframe programmer on an IBM 1401 in the mid-1960s. Lured to California by the Summer of Love and better music than American Bandstand in nearby Philadelphia, he became a systems analyst and programmer for American Express, assigned to help integrate their newly-acquired San Francisco investment operations with the parent company's systems in New York. As that project ended early in 1970, a fortuitous opportunity to make a career change to Security Analyst opened up, and he leaped at the chance. His first recommendation was to sell Memorex at $172 at the very bottom of the 1969-1970 bear market. During the subsequent two-year market rally, Memorex went to $2 a share, thus convincing him that it is indeed a market of stocks rather than a stock market.
He earned his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation in 1975, the same year The Capital Group/American Funds acquired the American Express mutual fund group. He commuted to Capital in Los Angeles for over five years, getting on a first-name basis with many flight attendants. After the introduction of the IBM PC in April 1981, he left Capital to found the California Technology Stock Letter. In 1997 he also became the founding editor of Technology Investing, which acquired CTSL in 2003 and changed its name to New World Investor in 2007.
In the 1970s he invented and patented a stock value calculator, and in the 1980s he served as the CEO of two software companies. In 1997 he authored the business best-seller Every Investor's Guide to High-Tech Stocks and Mutual Funds, and he has a forthcoming book on investing in a hyperinflation. In addition to investing, his interests include a biodynamic, organic permaculture farm to raise rare-breed animals, heritage seed crops and children. For many years he held the Class I/E record for electric cars at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and in 2001 he narrowly missed the world record for electric hydroplanes. He expects to go back to Bonneville in 2019 to reclaim the electric car record with his then-16 year old daughter driving. You are all invited to watch or help out.
