I had experience with one of the programmers for the instrumentation 
unit for the S5 stage which was in the ring between the first and second 
stages, I think.

I was an expert witness in a lawsuit having nothing at all to do with 
this, but he was the expert called for the other party.

To make a long story short, expert witness' credentials frequently turn 
out to be who has the best credentials.

I talked to him before we went in to a deposition, and I granted him 
that point before we even started.

I feel privileged to have met him, and wish we could have visited more 
on the subject rather than what we were paid to do.  Sadly I was not 
even supposed to get into anything but luckily this was told to us after 
we had chatted.

I think his name was Tom Follett, and I do not recall ever finding 
anything about him.  I believe that he had a PhD, but I do not recall 
much else, such as company, or education.

I don't know much about what this system had to do other than ground to 
second stage ignition guidance tasks.
