Science & Electronics Technology Links

by Lewis Loflin

Science today is under assault in the name of social justice and pantheist' or "earth-center" mysticism. I've been into earth science and electronics technology for over 50 years and I have grave concerns with this issue. Science and technology have made great strides in improving human life and some are angry with that along with everything else. Science doesn't care about your feelings or spiritual beliefs nor do I.

See the graphic Science Vs. Environmentalism. I accept only the scientific method and not political opinions or authority of political activists collecting science grants from the government.

Have an older 32-bit PC sitting around with a printer port? While many want to go to Raspberry Pi, but why not experiment with connecting basic electronics to a PC printer port? Switch LEDs and motors on/off. Read a voltage. Operate a LCD display.

One can do this even with old GWBASIC that was included with Microsoft DOS three decades ago.

In my view technology is the future and the real answer to many problems. On the other end technology will eliminate many jobs.

I've had been a part-time adjunct professor at a local community college teaching electricity and electronics. I have 40 years experience in electronics from vacuum tubes to modern solid state and industrial controls. In college I had a year each of physics, chemistry, and biology along with C, C++. Pascal, and assembly.

I'd say my job title would be applied technologist. See Electronics Projects for Students and Hobbyists
