“Service as a Maester is a noble calling, one of vital importance to a prosperous realm. It is little wonder there are some who refer to the Order as the Knights of the Mind.”Maester Luwin[src]


I am an Electronics Technologist and Designer with 16 years of experience with an established Educational / Research institution. (A combined 19ish years of Electronics experience.)

I enjoy digital electronics, programming, instrumentation, data acquisition, and technical documentation.

I have an unquenchable curiosity for Technology and where the world may be headed.  Can Humanity control their creations?
My Facebook Page is a blend of electronics design with culture and ethics. How does tech affect society?

TechMæster is a blog created to chronicle my various hair-brained electronics projects and ideas as well as information and thoughts about technology and society.  I hope to share knowledge, foster discussion and provide inspiration to you and your electronic design projects and tinkerings…

Borrowing the word Maester from Game of Thrones, I thought this was the perfect description for me tech website.

Maesters, formally known as the Order of Maesters, are an order of scholars, healers, and learned men in the Seven Kingdoms. Due to their scientific and intellectual pursuits, they are sometimes referred to as “the knights of the mind”.”Game of Thrones, wikia


I encourage collaboration and discussion where ever possible.  Thanks for visiting!

Automation and your Future Job: Will you have one?

  Automation and your Future I thought that this information might be of some use. It seems to point to where #automation is going. It also seems to point out who might be affected most by #industrial automation and, of course, the #robots. Courtesy of: Visual Capitalist

Is AI a threat to humanity?

There is a great fear that surrounds AI. I think it’s important to understand there is a difference between the AI that DeepMind [Google’s pet] is and the machine learning systems that are being developed for production assistance.
