(June 12, 1978) Fresh out of Caltech, I started work as a Software Engineer at Beckman Instruments, Inc.[^] (When the founder, Dr. Arnold Beckman[^], was still Chairman of the Board.)
Over time the company merged to become SmithKline Beckman.
Was divested back to being Beckman Instruments, Inc.
Merged to become Beckman Coulter, Inc.
Was acquired by Danaher to become a wholly-owned subsidiary.
And this January, as part of the Capillary Electrophoresis group, was transferred from Beckman Coulter to AB Sciex (another Danaher company).

It's been a long great journey, that isn't over(!).
I've worked with many great people on some pretty cool projects (some ahead of their time).
A positive attitude may not solve every problem, but it will annoy enough people to be worth the effort.
