Sabine K McNeill

Born as Sabine Kurjo in Silesia, I survived the bombing of Dresden as a 4-months-old baby thanks to my then 22-year-old mum. I grew up in the North of Germany (near Bremerhaven), finished school in the South (Munich), studied mathematics and computing in the middle (Darmstadt) and started work as a systems analyst at CERN the European Centre for Nuclear Research in Geneva, where the web was born.

In 1973 I was sent to Lawrence Radiation Lab in Berkeley, but a physicist friend of mine fell asleep while driving and we fell for 25 feet. Even though the doctor of the insurance company said I will not suffer in later life, I have not been without pain ever since. But I am realigning my skeleton most successfully with Bikram Yoga.

In 1981 I came to London with the vision of a ‘peace network’ of people and computers protecting our planet. I created “Turning Points @ St. James’s” and ran it until 1988. It still continues today as Alternatives.

I organised many other events, conferences and seminars and co-founded ‘NetReach’ – Networking Computers and Reaching out to People by Computer.

13 10 14 Only Connect covers RIn 1988 I married Ian R McNeill who as a young man had been the Assistant Director of the Greater London Council. I learned from him how to write in English and together we wrote the book “Only Connect – The Art and Technology of Networking for Personal Change and Global Transformation”.

Since 1996 I wrote and withdrew five patent applications, produced four pieces of prototype software and participated in many scientific seminars and conferences. I constantly need to compare why, although my thinking is ‘outside the box’, it makes sense: if and only if, it is expressed via software.

    • This is just to clarify: in 1985 I used to publish a list of American military bases using PRESTEL and co-founded the computer networking group NetReach. Funny what the net brings back…

    You look bloody good for your age!!!!!

    What the secret of eternal youth?

  3. Thanks for the compliment, Jeff!

    Age is completely irrelevant.

    What counts is how to make things happen and how to respond to those that happen to us.

    i ‘had nothing to hide’ really either…..but you know what they did to me! never even been on a march or anything….alright for you, guess remaining highly visible is probably your best bet….and believe you have some relatively powerful contacts…..shame Ahmed getting lynched now, but by rights he probably should be in prison for that other thing…..

  7. JM says:

    twas trying to stay visible as i could online to, in the hope that when i’m disappeared again somebody would notice…..but even Hemming bizarrely/ randomly censoring me to now, so staying well clear of there….

  8. JM says:

    still can’t think str8…..my main point was that people do get killed and far worse when people know where you live…I used to work a bit in Data Protection and campaigned a bit on privacy issues….e.g. I was working at BT when somebody there sold their DB to 192.com, an american company, and everybody’s address was published on the Internet….Jill Dando would still be alive if not for that as well as many other people you will never get to hear about…..

  9. JM says:

    i’ll put my brain back in in a minute….who? the only way I know to get a name out of one is to kill one in self defence…..what you have to do to one to see some ID, make them admit that they’re G-men, do actually know who they are…….is beyond my powers of deduction!

    Hi Sabine,
    just quick note to thank you for endeavours, since having a stroke I have found it almost impossible to understand what on Earth you are on about sometimes, not because the information isn’t clear but because there is so much of it, thank goodness for your incredible stamina, more power to you, keep up the marvelous work!
    all the best of luck in the future.
    Colin
