Has anyone written a history of biotelemetry? I’ve started getting interested in the subject because of my work on pervasive computing and mobile devices. I’d think someone had taken it up.
If not, this would make an excellent dissertation topic. No less a figure than James Lovelock, of Gaia hypothesis fame, was involved in the early history of the field, and from what I can tell, it’s a subject that folds together advancing technology, evolving scientific practice, career building opportunity, and a variety of research agendas and questions. A nice, rich mix.
Now someone write 500 pages and e-mail me!
