Man Builds Exoskeleton: Editorial and Update 
12th-Jun-2006 07:20 pm
Remember this entry? As you can see, I've corrected an oversight after the inventor of the exoskeleton paid me a visit:


Thank you for posting the article. If it is not too much trouble I would ask you to make a small correction.

It is sort of a military thing so I hope you do not mind.

The Term "Ex Army Ranger" implies a dead one.

"Once a Ranger always a Ranger" If you can not make the change that is okay, but if you can I would appreciate it. Change it to "Retired Army Ranger" or something like that.

I just don't want any of my old Army buddies to think I died, okay.

I am getting ready to go to the Robolympics event in San Fransisco to demonstrate the robotic suits.

Sci Fi is the future. There is a lot of Science coming out of sci fi lately. Nano Tech nanobots, Space Elevators, exosuits, robot vacuums, solar cars etc...

NASA has just given me a grant to work on powered spacesuits this summer.

Thanks again for posting the article.

I hope to see you soon.

Warm Regards,


Oh, I see. Sorry, I didn't realize I was making a such a gaffe. And it bothers me that I did so inadvertantly because I respect the Rangers, their level of training, extraordinary dedication to duty, and exemplary service to this country. I sincerely apologize for my oversight. I will hasten to correct the entry and post an editorial in my next entry. Please look for it tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by, Mr. Reed. I'm glad you gave me the oppourtunity to correct unwitting oversight.

Aside from that, I also appreciate your update about your work. Furthermore, I'm happy and astonished that you found my little weblog amongst the vast primordial soup we refer to as the blogosphere(I'm pretty low on the Google and Technorati totem poles from what I understand). This is the first something like this has happened to me. darth_spacey do you know Monty personally and did you inform him of my entry?

In any case Monty, if you plan to stick around and keep blogging on LiveJournal, feel free to friend me and I'll friend you back. And even if you don't plan to keep blogging on LiveJournal, feel free to stop by and comment anyway. Non-LJ users don't need an account to comment here. Just click the option to leave an anonymous comment but sign your name at the bottom. As soon as I notice it, I'll unscreen it.

Thanks again for stopping by, sir. It was an honor.

I'm not aware of knowing either anyone named Monty, or an army Ranger.

How cool to have someone from an article you posted show up on your blog. I'm totally jealous.

Zibacco seems to have disappeared off of the face of Live Journal, so I'm in the process of contacting all of his mutual friends in hopes that someone knows where he's disappeared to, or has the ability to contact someone who knows him in real life that they might be able to find out. Even a non-live journal means of contact would be helpful. He hasn't posted in nearly two months and that has me terribly worried. Any information would be appreciated.
