Ok, it seems that you’re still reading. Here you can find more details:
I climbed the ladder of life from the bottom all the way to where I am now. I was financially poor, but was rich with morals, faith, and education. Over 40 years ago, I learned and mastered chess. My coach was a chess champion in Jordan who was visually impaired (blind man), Dr. Mohamed Younis (bless his soul). I still have that very first chess board which was specially made for the visually impaired.
Long ago, I published a heavily mathematical book on Reservoir Simulation along with a computer program to predict the amount of oil or gas in a given geographical area.
Over 30 years ago, I designed, implemented, and managed one of the first FDDI high speed backbones connecting several engineering buildings and linking to a national high-speed research network; the Synthesis Coalition. At the same time, I secured external funding to build the first Internet & email network on campus; BitNet; funded by the National science Foundation.
About 15 years ago, I helped build a technology startup; Kahmas Technology, for my friend Dr. Nayef Al-Rodhan, the most brilliant Arab neurosurgeon, philosopher, and writer.
Last but not least, I’m a lousy husband, a photographer, a chess player, and a peace lover. I love women: my mother, my wife, my daughters, and my sisters.
