Bats and I have something in common (yes, I know that's weird): we operate in various stages of somnabulism during the day, but oh baby, just catch us after the witching hour 'cause- whooeeee - that's when we come alive! It must be a genetic thing and probably delightful for bats, none of whom have to deal with the IBM nine-to-five humanoid work world in the morning. Sigh. Meanwhile, I am not employed by IBM. BTW, is anyone? And is anyone besides me paranoid enough to think technology is running the world minus warm blooded interference?

At JPL, there is no shortage of doctorates and intellectual pedigrees among the facility's 5,000 employees. But what is rare, anyone there can tell you, is a truly good manager. Enter David Gallagher, a La Cañada resident recently appointed by JPL to head the directorate of Astronomy, Physics and Space Technology, one of five operational divisions. Gallagher is modest about his high-ranking position, indicating with a chuckle that he's come all this way on “just” a bachelor's degree in engineering from Purdue University and his ability to organize diverse groups of people.
