You know this blog and its pages have been a very important receptical for my work over the past two or so years, since I set up the blog in fact, and its use is soon coming to a close.
You see I set it up to preserve intellectual property, not to impress.
I wanted my data out there and labelled as MINE or at least, as somebody elses to you know what – the University!
I have been in a mindless dispute with the “Establishment” of the University of Bath for some years now and as they dominate where I live now, they have alot of “pull” in the area.
This means the police.
This means I have had intrusion in my place of living and theft, yes theft, of my work until I have not known what was going to go next – so I put it ALL online for better or for worse, just to get it there and retain a copy in everyone’s computer who looks at it.
Now I have produced a first – a paper that goes three ways to hell across the board fron Biology to Mechaical Engineering without need to consult with a biologist nor another mechaical engineer – a biomimeticist is born.
Knowing both sides of the coin is rare – usually people concentrate on their own fields of expertise but I was forced at first and then I elected to go that way myself – to see what I could do with what I had (which was vry little).
I have three papers in the offing now – the first has already been produced as a springboard into the second and then, surprise surprise, the third relies on the rsults of the first two and so that should be assured a publication deal too. That makes three without needing to lift another pen. That makes a first too, in the Journal of Robotics and Biomimetics, of three papers by the same precise author in their Journal. That makes me pretty experienced in writing papers and too it makes me assured of the reward of being the best expert in my field the world has seen so far!
That field? Attachment mechanisms. Biological ones and there mechanical analogues.
How to attach a head to a neck, or how to join a leg to a stump or how to join a control system monitor to a nervous system.
If there are any new people in the field intersted in working with me on a project someday – well – here I am!
