My name is Glyn Adgie. I am an electronics design engineer by training and job title, but I frequently deal with other fields of engineering in the course of my work. I have investigated the causes and cures of corrosion, and contributed to the redesign of a product that suffered premature failures due to metal fatigue. I have some experience in software design, as many electronic products have a firmware component these days.
Outside of work, I have many interests, some of which have an ecological component. For example, I am concerned about the environmental costs of agriculture and the food supply chain as a whole. At a personal level, dietary choices and cooking methods come into this. One hopes that the right personal choices, if made by enough people, will change our agricultural and food supply methods for the better, just through economic forces.
I will now put some thought to some more specific discussion topics.
