Dr. Aaron Wolf Baum aka Dr. Friendly
In 1981 the twelve-year old future Dr. Aaron Wolf Baum, now Dr. Friendly, read astronomy textbooks, programmed TRS-80s, wrote poetry, and wandered in the woods.Next came a career in physics, culminating in a Ph.D. from Stanford and a job in Silicon Valley commercializing a technology he had pioneered. His artistic vision was first realized in the Nebulous Entity which irradiated the 1999 Burning Man festival. Since March 2000 he has worked exclusively on programmed sensory environment-instruments and science fiction myth-making.
