I am currently the founder and principal engineer of the NdustriX "Software For Business Intelligence Analytics," which has applications in operations research, and optimization, (i.e., minimizing risk, while at the same time maximizing gain,) of business operations. The analytical methodology is based on the principles of non-linear high entropy dynamical systems from econophysics. The NtropiX "Software For Algorithmic Trading Of Equities," is a derivative works of the NdustriX software code base.

Prior to NdustriX, I was an executive and member of the founding team of several high technology companies, including Vice President of Technology of Seiko-Epson Semiconductor in the Americas, which grew to an annual gross revenue of a hundred million (1980's) dollars in five years. I have been an executive in the high-technology industry for over two decades, and on the board of directors of several companies-which included interfacing with the venture capital community. I have a BS in EE/CS.

Since the late 1980's, I have been involved in the open source software community, and have written and supported over 130 programs with over a hundred thousand lines of code-there have been over a half of a million downloads of the programs. I have used Linux for over a decade and a half-including developing computer network security architectures. In addition, I have contributed many analog circuit designs to the community, (I'm a Fairchild Semiconductor IC design engineer alumni in Silicon Valley.)

When I'm not doing electronics engineering and technology, my hobbies include bicycling, skiing, in addition to hanging out with the folks in the Linux community.

Site History

This site has been on the Internet since January 7, 1989-it started as a UUNET/USENET/UUCP site. Astonishingly, the first message sent from the site is still available in Google's comp.unix.questions usenet archives. The domain, johncon.com, was registered with SRI/InterNIC on May 4, 1992.

Assorted Correspondence

The correspondence spans the late 1970's through the present, (some of the dates are incorrect,) and are concerned, (for the most part,) with the integration of information technology, entropic economics, and management theory into a unified concept of corporate management.
