About …Face

The blogger emerges from the dark shadows

As a young man David Hon wrote for city newspapers, visited Vietnam with the military, and taught English in South America. He thought that someday he would write about English as an international communication tool. Different directions into the Computer Age, however, led Hon to develop the world’s first realistic medical simulators. He won international awards and created a successful company, Ixion, to produce those computerized simulators and was an early TED speaker discussing that technology and its implications.

That is in the past, and now Hon feels he must do some retro reporting, encapsulating a few of his unique takes on the world before he forgets them all.
