San Antonio

A Major Contributor to Science, Technology & Innovation

David Monroe, our speaker for August 2016, is a tech pioneer with numerous successful start-ups to his credit, more than 50 patents and the first recipient of the first San Antonio Lifetime Achievement Award by the InnoTech Advisory Council, which acknowledged his 30 years and numerous contributions in the fields of electronics and technology.

Mr. Monroe will be speaking about how San Antonio contributed to science, technology and innovation; how it is home for over 300 scientists who have been principal contributors to a dozen NASA deep space missions; how it was the birthplace of the "Personal Computer“; and how it launched the microprocessor revolution that fuels the PC industry of today. There are many other examples! In spite of these many other amazing accomplishments, San Antonio is not known as a Tech City. Come hear about the formation of SAMSAT, San Antonio’s Museum for Science and Technology, showcasing some of the technology and products that have been developed in San Antonio and have played a huge role in global technology development.

Join David in taking a look at some of the awesome San Antonio stories and artifacts and find out how you can contribute your own stories to this San Antonio Tech heritage!

Beginning at San Antonio’s Computer Terminal Corporation (later Datapoint Corporation) in the 1970s, David contributed to the evolution of the desktop computer, later to be dubbed the “PC.” He has worked on numerous technological innovations including: personal solid state memory (now known as the thumb drive); tele-radiology, which helps radiologists read X-rays remotely; and a “multi-function workstation” that integrated video, voice and data into one workstation. He also founded PhotoTelesis Corporation, where he led a team that developed secure and cellular imaging transmission systems for the U.S. and foreign governments.
