About Dr. Vax

I'm Irv Shapiro AKA Dr. Vax.  I am not an MD or PHP.  Over thirty years ago while working at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) and specializing in VAX (virtual address extended) computers, an early adopter of virtual memory, I acquired the nickname of Dr. Vax.

This blog captures my love for learning new stuff and communicating it to others. While building businesses, first inside of DEC and then at three startups I founded, I had the opportunity to study topics that range from computer technology to accounting, from education to machine learning, from motivation to organizational dynamics.   Now I will explore topics that tickle my fancy and share my experiences with you.

If you enjoy learning, you will find this a satisfying destination.
