John has been a programmer and computer science researcher for all of his career, almost entirely on Unix-type systems, working in a variety of programming languages but with C as his mainstay. Day-job projects have included a PostScript clone, a CAD system, bioinformatics, evolutionary computation, a hypervisor, resource scheduling, test management, and information retrieval. He dabbles in a variety of own-time projects, open-sourcing them where relevant, and is a fairly regular openstreetmap contributor, and an active member of his local hackerspace, Makespace.
