- Ed Thelen -



I started this web site in 1996, when most guys showed themselves in their favorite T-shirt next to a red convertible. Being a contrarian, and having no favorite T-shirt nor red convertible, I refused to do that.

In 2003, George Runkle asked for a picture, and J.P. Moore asked for a short bio.

A short tale of my life

- but chemistry appeared restricted to DuPont, which seemed limiting
- but I was also stumped by the double slit phenomena, or more seriously
so I became a enjinerr .
