Mixtape Session #6: Simulator for EOD Workspace

  • Posted on: 28 Jul 2021

Greensea and GRi Simulations have created a training simulator for EOD Workspace that replicates the real world experience of flying an ROV. This allows technicians to train without putting an ROV in the water. Ben Kinnaman shares his excitement with this new tool for the EOD toolbox and acts as trainer while Karnveer Gill stands […]

Unfiltered #11 – Back to the office

  • Posted on: 30 Apr 2021

(A note to Greensea staff) All hands… I am proud that Greensea chose a safe and responsible path through the pandemic. We locked the doors and sent people home, bringing only those back to the office as their tasking required. We could have followed the path of many companies around us and claimed we were […]

Unfiltered #10 – A Story about Product Development

  • Posted on: 02 Apr 2021

I’m going to tell an honest story about product development and share some lessons learned. This is an age-old story of trying hard to hit the end-users’ expectations, missing, rattling around a bit, and finally succeeding. It is also a story as timeless as the “relationship” between engineers and operators. Why on Earth, you may […]

Unfiltered #9 – No, it is actually about the destination

  • Posted on: 10 Feb 2021

There are numerous quotes about prioritizing the journey over the destination.  They go something like this (to cite a couple): “Focus on the journey, not the destination.  Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” -Greg Anderson “Success is a journey, not a destination.  The doing is often more important than […]

Unfiltered #8 – The Irrationality of Entrepreneurship

  • Posted on: 14 Jan 2021

I have done some stupid shit in my life.  There have been many questionable decisions.  But, there have also been just some flat out stupid choices.  For instance, and just to set the bar here….  In my early twenties, I lived on a boat in Stock Island, FL near Key West.  Now, this was the […]

Unfiltered #6 – Open Up and Say… Ahh!

  • Posted on: 16 Dec 2020

Open Up and Say… Ahh!  An awesomely appropriate title for a blog on open architecture.  Also, the name of an album from an awesomely awesome glam band from the 80s that spawned four collections of ear-worms that still haunt the subconscious internal jukeboxes of those of us fortunate enough to be kids in 1988.  This […]

Unfiltered #5 – The Myth of Solo Success

  • Posted on: 02 Dec 2020

Last week was Thanksgiving in the US.  This is a time to reflect and to give thanks for what we have.  Traditionally, it has also been a time to travel, see family and friends, relax, and eat – a lot.  This year, some of those traditions were paused to limit travel and communion out of […]

I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world.  We have been married for 17 years and have been in a committed relationship for more than 22 years.  I’ll be with this woman until the day I die. But, there have been others.  Some have been one-time affairs, contractual really, just there to […]
