Hi Steve, and yes, I'm very familiar with you and your work as found in various esteemed journals over the years. You are one of the authors I have been following for some time and derive great value from your work. While I respect your integrity, and mean no disrespect, I find it hard to believe someone can build long term credibility in this field without representing themselves as a author.
@MWagner_MA---there are so many reasons that a blogger may want to remain anonymous;however, I assure you that this blogger is a professional engineer.
I would not be just placing just a 'warm body' as a blogger on Planet Analog or any of my other sites----I think you know that I am also a professional and I would never post meaningless content for my audience.---Remember, I was part of the audience for EDN, EETimes, and Planet Analog (PA) since 1968 (Although PA was not around then)
