Things to see: @invis_insight


I've worked for more than 13 years, designing products for web ventures, from 3-person initiatives to medium-large industry. Strong Presentation and Negotiation Skills have been key to this work (in addition to the full monte; infrastructure, database design, core algorithms, scaling, backed and frontend frameworks, test-ability, compliance, and UI/UX + SEO).

I also design technology & products by drawing from a history of fabrication, prototyping, sourcing, and scientific research (applied physics). I am a practicing sculptor, and establish new product aesthetics via my own approach to engineering fluid-mechanical processes. From this work in water, I have built a broad & deep knowledge-base on the application of fluid phenomenon to industry needs.

I have lead successful small-capitalization stages, wrote grants & engaged program officers, developed teams and timelines, design of experiments, measurement, and business development.

comment What is the origin of “burning a hole in my pocket”?
It's interesting, though to me it looks like it opens a deeper can or worms regarding the origin of the expression "burning in one's pocket". Did people often put things in their pocket that were hot or burning? Was that just imaginative in origin?

comment Etymology of “vagina”?
Does the root *wag- "to break, split, bite." imply that the vagina itself has holds the action-verb nature of its root? Or does the root pertain because the vagina receives that action, matching the latter linguistics meanings of 'sheathing, husking'? It would seem the latter, but this is a switch of the direction of meaning. I can ask this as a new question, if anyone thinks it well.

comment Synomyns for undoable
I don't think this question is well-formatted. It has no precise target — how will you accept any one response as an "answer"? related meta, though not exactly.

comment Is there a word that describes the swift and skillful covering of the natural emotions?
Besides 'mask' and 'poker face', "dissimulate" and "dissemble" seem to most-often have the usage that was the focus of my question: the swift-covering of the natural response. I am specifically looking to identify that a natural reaction began, evanescently, and was deftly replaced by another visage.

comment Objects with no name, like “the Sun”
@RichardGadsden as stated below, "SF writers also tend to use "Terra" for Earth for a similar reason, although admittedly people would be less likely to call their non-Terra planet "Earth", than they are to call their non-Sol star 'the Sun'"
