Speaking, Presentations and Keynotes:

Heinz Block delivering the keynote presentationMr. Bloch has spoken at many important machine reliability conferences worldwide. .

This represents a very valuable source of information, as a presentation typically represents a lot of knowledge and research, but also a lot of time making this information accessible. Anyone with an interest in machine reliability is advised to check back regularly and review these presentations, some of which would have cost thousands of dollars to attend.
