Of course it does. Credentials are useful, experience more so. Heck next
week we have a whole bunch of experts here to give opinions to the industry
(shameless plug for iweek)

Nope, but he's a key figure on the network I look after and has been
involved in it various ways since inception and to this day.

Fair enough. At least there is something to reference now instead of

"For a smart material to be able to send out a more complex signal it needs
to be nonlinear. If you hit a tuning fork twice as hard it will ring twice
as loud but still at the same frequency. That's a linear response. If you
hit a person twice as hard they're unlikely just to shout twice as loud.
That property lets you learn more about the person than the tuning fork." -
Neil Gershenfeld, When Things Start to Think, 1999
