Back to the blog!

When I started this blog I had a basic idea in my head.  I wanted a somewhat anonymous and “semi professional” setup – where I would concentrate on issues and leave out personal preferences.

Of course, as happens with many of my projects, life got in the way.  This time in the form of a major crunch at my main job, followed by a move from an apartment to a house.   That’s not to say that I didn’t try to post.  I sat down at least a dozen times – but the words didn’t flow.  What I’ve found is that the whole “keep it non personal” didn’t work for me in this particular blog.   Don’t get me wrong – I can write articles, test procedures, and reports with the best of them.    What I couldn’t do is a blog entry I was happy with in that format.

So, I’m going to try again, this time without the fourth wall I was dancing with before.

I should start with a bio -
My name is Adam, and I’m an electrical engineer.
(I feel like I should say I am a friend of Bill Hewlett or something here)
I’m currently 35, and have been in the field in a professional sense college.   In a hobby sense, I’ve been designing circuits since I could read (and have the dog eared first edition  of Forrest M. Mim’s Getting started in electronics to prove it)
Over the years I’ve worked for large and small corporations.   I’m currently at a medium sized aerospace company.  Professionally, my focus has been embedded systems – both hardware and software.  This has ranged from 8 pin PIC based systems all the way up through flight qualified VME systems running on more than 40 separate PowerPC processors.
In a hobby sense my interests are many and varied.   Robotics has always been a love of mine – specifically autonomous robotics and vision systems.  I also spend quite a bit if time with Radio Controlled planes, helicopters, quadcopters, and cars (the last two of which roll back into robotics).   Photography is another big hobby. .
In my non-electronics life, I live in New York with my girlfriend Dory, two Cats, and two birds.  Dory has been nominated for sainthood due to her putting up with my projects cluttering up the small apartment we lived in until earlier this year.  You can find me on twitter as @ajfabio, and on various IRC channels as VayaConQueso.
So that’s it for a quick bio – expect to see more posts from me in the near future.

  1. Glad to see you’re posting again!

    A word of advice, though it was not asked for: your writing is never as crappy as you think it is when you finally sit down to write something. I’ve had people tell me how much they loved the post I wrote after a few beers late on a Thursday night; some things hit people more than others. Start small and get on a schedule of posting updates, no matter how small. Have someone else hold you accountable to posting regularly, whatever you say that schedule should be. And most of all, have fun! I know I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed writing as I got a little better at it.

    Thanks for the post. I am actually a slightly younger version of you (26). I dabble with everything electronics at home (algorithms more than robotics) and am a Digital Engineer by day. I also love photography and astronomy.

    Thanks for tearing down that fourth wall :)

    I see a lot of interesting posts on your page. You have to spend a lot of time writing, i know how to save you a lot of time, there is a tool that
    creates unique, google friendly posts in couple of seconds,
    just type in google – laranita’s free content source

  4. It is a phrase, a vocation, and perhaps even a destiny for some.
    Beginners should apply the same either in the early stages or while they are approaching the
    closing stages of the game. Maybe this could be done by
    giving them the ability to create a Halo Kinect only title.
