Kris Stewart's Timeline of
Update 15 Feb 2022;
Timeline 2 [1990-2013];
My pubs and Grants
important activities - Part 1
As a "non-traditional" computer science faculty member, according to Dean Don Short, SDSU College of Sciences, it became my obligation to keep my peers informed so they understand that my activities are appropriate and effective in the realm of higher education. My goal in this page involved resolving my childhood, as a Marine Corps brat, with my professional career, Computer Science professor emeritus, now that I retired from 30June2013.
I credit Walt Disney with major motivation for me since childhood, please read
Kris Stewart thoughts on Walt Disney for more info. It is good to see "higher ed" has come to realize this also from the Chronicle of Higher Education article,

Also, in tune with my professional career in Computer Science, I have been "forced" to rethink my relationship towards Steve Jobs. I was always a PC person, since the early days of computers and my Imsai 8080 kit computer
used in movie War Games. I chose to build mine with the
Zilog Z80 floating point co-processor to avoid doing this work in software.
