Stanford has an Engineering Heroes program.
Brad Parkinson was elected last year. This is the video of his talk last May.
In case you don't recognize the name, he's the Father of GPS. No surprise,
but he's a very good speaker.
Bradford Parkinson "GPS for Humanity" - Stanford Engineering Hero Lecture
His PhD is from Stanford and he is now Professor Emeritus. In between, he
was in the Air Force managing the GPS program and teaching at Stanford.
It's a high level talk, far from focused on geeky technical details. Several
times his slides said GP(t)S to remind people about time. He mentioned
jammers and LightSquared and common view.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
