Deb Shaw is looking for Silicon Valley work in vision, speech, or robotics to improve education or the quality of life, especially for children or the handicapped. She has DP/MIS and scientific programming experience in South Carolina, Tennessee (Oak Ridge), and Oklahoma (MAPCO). She has an interest in machine learning, and wants to work in microprogramming, electronics, and computer hardware while preparing for a Master's in computer engineering. Deb isn't hooked back into the net since moving to Mountain View, but she can be reached through me or at (415) 960-1152.
David Goldfarb (email@example.com) is a consultant in Israel, working with Symbolics, OS/2, and DOS machines. He worked for Symbolics from '81 until '85, then developed an image-processing toolkit, and was one of the founders of International Lisp Associates (Cambridge, MA). In his spare time, he is developing an improved Common Lisp for OS/2. (He's looking for contributions of time, money, or marketing contacts to turn this into a product.) David is also looking for consulting work that he can start while he's in Boston around Thanksgiving time.
Kim Wheeler (firstname.lastname@example.org) is completing a Master's in EE within the McGIll Research Centre for Intelligent Machines. Her computer vision system tracks living cells during growth and mitosis, for use in cancer research. Kim previously worked as a software engineer for CAE Electronics (St. Laurent, Quebec) on large real-time control systems for hydroelectric and energy management systems. Her interests are in biomedical engineering, expert systems, AI, and cognitive science, plus tennis, photography, camping, science fiction, and beer and wine making. Kim will be available this January, and is especially interested in job leads for San Diego, the South of France (e.g., Marseille), or Canberra, Australia -- where her fiancee might find a postdoc in fusion research.
