What's the connection between a beehive and a computer? Ask James Wilkes.
You may know Wilkes as a local beekeeper and a regular vendor at the Watauga County Farmers' Market where he and his family sell honey, baked goods, produce, cut flowers and eggs from Faith Mountain Farm ( http://www.buyappalachian.org/listing/faith-mountain-farm).
You may not know him as Dr. James Wilkes, chairperson of the Department of Computer Science at Appalachian State University.
