    He invented Polk-a-dots. Really nice rags to riches story

    I've read that article before but it's always nice to re-visit.

    That was interesting reading; sounds like a regular d00d (that's a good thing)
    who knows what he's talking about (that's a good thing, too).

    Kind of a shame, though, that the marine biology thing didn't work out; "SeaHunt" would probably still be on the air if it had and we'd probably be conversing with dolphins by now.

    ;)

    All in all, not too shabby for somebody with a degree from Johns Hopkins.

    I have only read half of it so far. But seems like a decent read. Thanks for the link.
