Why would he
want to take on such an adventure? Here is the beginning of the tale and
a little history about Sleepnet.com's Sandman.
As the legend
goes, Sandman graduated from the University of Georgia in 1978 (go dogs)
with a B.S. in Psychology. No one knows why psychology, it just happened.
Moving back to his birthplace, California, he began working at Stanford
University's Sleep Disorder Center in 1979, watching people sleep in both
the clinic and research center. In 1988, after taking a long nap, he came
back to Stanford and began working with the group involved with training
and education in sleep disorders. In 1992 he began working at NASA Ames
Research Center with the Fatigue Countermeasure Program, conducting research
on sleepiness and fatigue in pilots, where long haul commercial airlines
was the focus. Four years later after collecting and analyzing data from
the cockpit, and collecting a few hundred thousand frequent flier miles
in the process, he went back to sleep education. But wait we are moving
too fast, lets back up and hear some of the details of this sleepy journey.
It all began
in 1979 when he was looking for work...(oops, need to get back to work
on the forums)
Who is this
masked man and why did he decide to stay out of the spotlight at Sleepnet.com?
for the further adventures of the Sandman.
