Longtime linux/unix nerd and IETF email/DNS person.

I've been a linux user since august 1992, which was a hard time, we didn't have a proper bootloader yet and Linus released kernels faster than I could carry floppies home from university. Also we had to walk uphill through the snow to get to the vt220 and access the internet. A few years later I helped found one of the first opensource companies (and Stallman called for my personal bankruptcy), and I wrote my first RFC around the same time. Thirty years later I now work for ICANN, making email and the DNS work for all the people, not just those who read and write the latin alphabet. Or trying to, anyway.
