The concepts were founded in logic, automata and computational complexity. The process involved jumping the hurdles of technology transfer, resistance to change and commercial justification, including the world of pay-back and back-bite. The experience plows through the center of issues such as: Is there such a thing as "Technology Transfer"? If so, how do you do it? If not, why does everyone talk about it? Is there really a role for fundamental science anymore? If so, who will support it?
