About

Like most sites, this is a work-in-progress.

Here's the About part.......

My name is Carl Johnson and I have published INFRASTRUCTURE in various forms, on and off, for over 20 years.  From the days of posting thought pieces on Usenet forums the venue has evolved. Daily Notes, Monthly Newsletters, Chip Manufacturing Tutorials, public speaking, panel moderation, consulting and blogging have all been part of the journey,  The business and the site were up and running before the Way Back Time Machine started scanning and archiving webpages.   You can see for yourself:  http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.infras.com

I am not much for grandstanding but for those interested here is a more formal bio:

In 1983 I graduated from Drake University with a B.S.B,A. in Finance/Investments.  I started my post-collegiate years with a job at Merrill Lynch. I left Merrill and spent a very short amount of time at Piper Jaffray.  After leaving Piper I purchased a Packard Bell computer from Montgomery Ward's, mounted a Bonneville satellite dish on my roof to pipe in quotes 24/7, and opened a hedge fund, After shutting the fund down in 1993 I, and and associate who had run six semiconductor fabs, started INFRASTRUCTURE.

Over the years I have published a lot of material - some good, some bad.  I have made a ton of speeches and moderated numerous panel discussions.  I have held the role of Chairman for SEMI's Strategic Business Committee and the Southwest Steering Committee.  I am currently a Research Fellow with Coburn Ventures and I will, occasionally, contribute a blog post to Forbes.

Presently I am sole owner and proprietor of this site.  I am responsible for everything here.

As this site fills out the writings and presentations I have made over the years will be available for your perusal.
