I'm co-founder of a San Francisco software company, Tangient LLC. In March 2005 we launched Wikispaces, a wiki hosting platform designed to be easy enough for everyone to use. As of winter 2012 Wikispaces is one of the largest wiki hosts in the world with over thirteen million members, millions of wikis, and 30+ million unique visitors a month.
From October 1999 through June 2003, I worked at VA Software (aka VA Linux), most recently as Director of Engineering for the SourceForge enterprise product. Before joining VA full time, I worked on VA's Linux.com property as a Senior Developer, spent a summer at Digital Fountain, and managed a network support helpdesk. I hold a BS in Applied Economics and Management from Cornell University.
If I were older, scarier-looking, and balding, I might resemble the gentleman from Grant Wood's American Gothic. It should be noted that Amanda does not resemble the gentleman's grown-up daughter.
