My current activities


I retired from Telcordia Technologies as head of research in October 2002. Since then I've been an independent consultant and have continued various professional activites, including board memberships, writing, speaking, advisory committees, etc. I'm looking for things that are intellectually stimulating and involve working with good people as my primary criteria. A number of people have asked if I will continue to write the bimonthly "Reflections" columns in Spectrum Magazine, and the answer is yes.

Since retirement in 2002, some of my activities have been the following:

In January of 2011 several of these activities ended. I retired from chairing the board of ANSER, my tenure ended on the Defense Science Board, and the Fort Monmouth Redevelopment Planning Authority ceased to exist. This Authority was supplanted by a new Authority charged with the implementation of the redevelopment plan created by its predecessor Authority. Governor Christie appointed me to this new Authority.

My tenures at the FCC and Department of Energy ended a few years earlier, and my term as chairman of the Marconi Society also ended.

In 2013 I feel more retired, for better or for worse. Most of the time-consuming activities are gone. I still write the Spectrum columns, am an active member of the board on the Fort Monmouth redevelopment authority, and remain a member of the Vanguard Advisory Board, setting up and managing the bi-monthly meetings for our member organizations.
