I’m interested in human potential and that untapped energy within us all, which enables us to make real our dreams.

Your favorite quote: 
"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did." --T. E. Lawrence (The Seven Pillars of Wisdom)

My darling wife: for seeing through the fog and finding me.

In Dean’s latest book, Developing Practical Wireless Applications (Digital Press, an imprint of Elsevier), 2007 - Dean has been critically acclaimed by Barnes & Noble who describe his book as “accessible enough for business decision makers, detailed enough for technologists, occasionally opinionated enough to keep everyone on their toes. It's like hiring a really well-connected industry expert -- for, say, one percent of the cost.” Bill Camarda, 2007.
