Wolf Paulus’ Journal

Wolf Paulus
Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by!
My name is Wolf Paulus, I’m a photographer, hiker, hacker, and technologist, based in Ramona, California.
This is my journal, where I share quick thoughts and ideas on technology.

I’m appointed to the advisory committee at the University of California, Irvine, and occasionally speak at conferences and user groups, on topics ranging from Embedded/Mobile Technology to Emotional Prosody and Voice and Conversational User Interfaces.

April 24-26, 2017 SpeechTEK

If you like, take a look at some of my photos and the stories they tell.
