WORK  CONTACTS  HISTORY

This page lists contacts I have made in
the semiconductor industry in silicon valley
over the years (previous century).
These are the good guys.
I don't mention the other guys.
Let's just say I have forgotten their names.

What I have found is precious little. On some individuals, their fate seems to be, simply gone and erased from history. The obvious exceptions are high-level individuals, who were very prominent, and mentioned on historical web pages. I can't even find obituaries of some who have passed. And I am a fairly diligent and experienced web searcher.

Whereas, I can recall fruitful searches of just a few years ago, that produce zero results today. Is that our fate?

Sad. Here today, gone tomorrow, with no online record.
It looks like my eventual fate is clear -

Insignificant, inconsequential and not remembered.

So, I decided to list a few of those folks that I remember, just for you, to see if YOU remember.

The biblical adage is dust-to-dust. But, maybe, I can bring a smile to your face, for a few seconds. And perhaps do a few projects.
.

Some of you may remember seeing my car.
Here is
what it looks like today, 51 years later.

WORK EXPERIENCE: Webmaster (19 years)

WEBMASTER - Search Engine Optimization Specialist
    100% telecommute from Soquel, CA 95073   (831) 464-8684


Reference:
     Google Ranking Factors - How to Rank High

     This endeavor has enabled me to earn over $ 1 M for Google,
     by placing AdSense ads on my web pages.
     But, it has been "Slim Pickins" and downhill since 2014,
     when Google innovation was replaced with bean counters.

DISCLAIMER:
I made this page to help me find old work contacts, to see where they had gone, and what they are doing now.

There have been questions, so this should help answer them, especially for LinkedIn historians.

NOT ALL of those missing were intentional.
Some I really don't remember, for which I apologize. Especially last names.

I will remove any names, that are requested to be removed by the owners. I do not intend to "out" anyone, against their wishes.

If YOU should have any info that you would like me to add about those folks on this list, feel free to
Contact me. I will not add people I do not know.

Email is best, due to the hell-on-earth computer phone dialers we now have to deal with. My ringer is turned off, which eliminates most of them, since they all give up at 5 rings. My recorder will answer at 6 rings, so a phone call will work, but not in real time. I will get back to you.

Thank you very much for your time.
