Jerry Pournelle:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Jerry E. Pournelle, Ph.D., earned his Bachelors in Psychology and Mathematics, his Masters in Experimental Statistics and Systems Engineering, and his Doctorates in Psychology and Political Science. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of science, and of the British Interplanetary Society. He wrote the lead column for BYTE for 20 years. His website (which might well be the web's first blog), is here. Because of peculiarities of my database, you will need to look at his contributions with frequent co-author Larry Niven here and here.
