John started out playing Wolfenstien 3D on his 386 at the ripe age of seven. These days you can find him hacking on GNU/Linux and FreeBSD or tweaking High Performance Grids during his day job at a North Carolina based, privately held, software company. At night he doesn't leave his iPhone 4S at home while he goes out on a quest to find the finest, locally brewed hops around.
