Steven M. Rubin





I am married to Amy Lansky (since 1984!) A former Computer Scientist at SRI International and NASA Ames, Amy is now a writer, Homeopathic advocate, and more. Her first book, Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy, is a bestseller on Amazon and her second book, Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within looks at consciousness and meditation (among many other topics).

We have two children: Izaak (born 1988, now a programmer for Google in Sydney, Australia) and Max (born 1991, now an animator in Los Angeles).

Computer Programming

I am the author of an open-source Computer-Aided Design program called Electric (available from the Free Software Foundation). Electric is used all over the world to design integrated-circuit chips.

In 1987, I wrote a textbook, Computer Aids for VLSI Design, which describes the algorithms used to build integrated-circuit design software.

Vaccine Safety Activism

I am the Director of Vaccine Research Analytics for the National Vaccine Information Center. My work centers on the U.S. Government's VAERS data, a collection of vaccine injury reports. Besides blogging about this, I also created the website, the best internet resource for searching VAERS.
