About Fred

Bio

Living as a Dyslexic for 55 years and having a Dyslexic son of 21, I have lived the life of extreme frustration. At 9 it became clear to me that the Dyslexic gene had been passed on, it took 6 years to prove it! THIS IS THE DILEMMA! TO LATE! at 15 he was set in his ways! Search the web and read the bios of all the genius & famous Dyslexics, they all had the same nightmare with the educational process. Yet with complete guidance through the maze a dyslexic now will be empower to utilize this unique thought process. If I had the this complete guidance back then my son would have been able to graduate college! Totally changing his future, at 21 he still struggles every day. Implementing ALL the elements before age 13 is a key factor.

Who is Fred Mathieu?
My claim to fame was collaborating with Fijitsu as the designer & team leader of the first 42 inch plasma TV sold in the US in 1997. Responsible for delegating tasks and following-up to ensure completion of teams to execute major trade show exhibits assuring flawless picture quality. As well as consumer and executive face-to-face sales presentations including crisis management. Personally I study the competition to identify trends and develop new ideas through research, report analysis in order to define problems and develop appropriate responses and set objectives to ensure they are met.

My core talent has always been non-stop observation to analyze new information in order to add to my knowledge of how all things work. My ability to modify existing components physically as well as component interfacing has placed a few of my designs in the history books of innovative AV firsts.

My TED story

Cant get enough !! Lenard so much! Wish Ted would enroll individuals at the top levels not just talk about solutions to major World problems. But when you have them all in that room stop the talking! Turn the camera on the seated and one by one get them on VIDEO to commit to do it together !!!!

Lawrence Lessig: We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim
  A simple solution we the 99% will vote every one out of office at any and all fed/state/county/election We keep doing it until they do what we tell them to do!  No longer can we reelect any one they ALL are tainted Republican or Democrat replacing 100% of congress is the so easy and the only way we can WAKE THEM UP So lets all 99% flush the toilet.  Nothing can stop us from doing this!  Change without collapsing our fragile system . Please pass this around! Why Not?

Debate: Should students rely on technology for their homework?

Ponder this When you are not in school a kid or working you use any and all technology to do any and all tasks. wE ARE NOT TEACHING CURRENT LEVEL REAL WORLD HOW TO OUR KIDS! So lets allow any and all tech to be used in all forms at all levels in education even in when taking a test! Do this in the USA and YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS GENERATION WILL ACHIEVE! BTW I am Dyslexic as is my oldest son we were destroyed by the current system!
