I’m a faculty member at UC San Diego, at the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IRPS). I’ve been there since 1992, with time off for sabbaticals at MIT and elsewhere. A lot of my research is about technological knowledge: what it is, what it does, how to develop it. I spent many years researching process improvement in the semiconductor industry, for example. I coauthored a book on the evolution of firearms manufacturing over 200 years.
My main research at present is how aviation – and by extension all important technologies – shifted from an art to a science over 80 years. Tentative book title is From Daredevils to System Operators.
I have a small research center, the Global Information Industry Center. (At some universities, the number of centers is greater than the number of faculty members!) We are busy quantifying the world’s information.
