James B. Olcott is Bernard’s oldest son (of three children total) and knew him intimately from 1958 through 2006. He graduated cum laude from Tufts University in 1980 (among other institutions).  Intermittently from 1983-2011, he was an executive officer with Olcott International & Co.  During that time he refined his expertise in various types of computer programs and is now currently Managing Director of Penultix Consulting, Inc., a company specialized in SAP enterprise management software.

Mr. Olcott’s professional articles have appeared in SAPTips Journal and on EURSAP’s blog, a leading European SAP integrator.

He currently lives in New York City and when not working or updating this blog, he can be found taking care of his family, skiing, body-surfing, or in constant motion between Montréal and Philadelphia.

The author’s favorite Buddhist expression:

Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water. 

 After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water.
