Guderian's Thumbnail Bio
I'm the one in the middle. The
three of us were making a joyous noise for "Bob" at the Ku Klux Klan rally 1 July 1990. We played
kazoos and sang stirring marching song such as "Der Fuehrer's Face" and "Springtime for Hitler." There
were groups like ACT-UP and various local committees for peace and justice protesting the march (more
power to 'em), but we were the only ones who really pissed the Klans off. Then, two of us drove to a a
party in Dallas. After that, everything was different.
Here's a more recent picture of me (from Feb 2001; my hair's much longer now - mid-2004):
1 June 1963 (same birthday as Marilyn Monroe--1926--and pre-anniversary of the 1974 Nico, Kevin
Ayers, John Cale and Brian Eno jam)
Sign: Feces or Vertigo, I forget. Or is it Rabies?
Formal Education: Rice University, B.S. Mechanical Engineering, May 1985
More Formal Education: University of Houston-Clear Lake, M.S. Future Studies. I stopped a few
hours shy of the degree. It was 1991 and I was studying this internet/BBS thing. I sort of fell
into my work. I don't regret it. Anyway, I recommend the program.
Also, I did a lot of reading.

Take it from me. If you're a geek, never work
for an advertising company.
