I’m fascinated with technology so I’ve been blogging on the latest advances in electronics, nanotechnology, entrepreneurship & innovation, computer networks, software/firmware, online learning, modeling & analysis, and on general science discoveries. I like to build things so some of my blogs describe my efforts, tutorials, or observation in making things.

  • NanoBlog covers all things nano.
  • Electronics covers electronics circuits, components, simulators, devices, prototyping, and evaluation boards.
  • Entrepreneurship & Innovation covers entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, and tools or ideas that help create and build a business.
  • Computer Networks covers computers, networks, peripherals, and tools to support a business and develop nanotechnology systems.
  • Software/Firmware covers firmware and software that can be used to support the operation of nanodevices or system with nanodevices.
  • Interest of the Day covers astronomy, physics, science, aviation, movies, animations, and other miscellaneous topics.
  • The 4-brane Project covers life long learning tools and courses.
  • Models and Analysis covers modeling and analysis of functions and data using Mathematica plus the Raspberry Pi computer running Linux and Mathematica.
  • My YouTube Channel for my graphene FET layout tutorial using LayoutEditor.
In addition to these blogs, there are a number of wiki pages that contain links to useful information. One of my most used is the Sellected Nano RSS Feeds. This wiki shows the RSS feeds of 15 nanotechnology based publications in one glance, for example.
