john with briefcase
First day of school

I am a nerd.  When I was nine years old, I started carrying a briefcase to school, and by twelve I had learned to ignore the other kids’ remarks and moved up to a Samsonite.  I have always been fascinated with subjects that others thought boring; at thirteen, my brothers and sister would look at me with incredulity as I watched Washington Week in Review and Louis Rukeyser’s Wall Street Week.   I spent my teenage years studying math and computer programming and running my own businesses.  I have spent a lifetime understanding and making predictions about business and the world.

JohnWGlassesSmallI feel fortunate to have been born in the computer and data age because they have provided the backdrop for my analytical skills.  The increasing importance of computer-informed and computer-controlled systems is why I studied data science at Northwestern to get a Masters. The world is going do be a different place in ten years, and if you doubt it, I would suggest The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil.

On these few pages, you will find ideas, images, and technologies.  I hope you find them as fascinating as I do.

Glad to here the car is in storage. Good luck with your Master’s Studies. Best wishes for 2017. Regards Tom Schenk.
