Speaker Bio

ADAM has been using Unix systems since early childhood (truth be told he 
can hardly remember using anything but). He messed with Rogue and Larn 
and even a C program or two on old SunOS 4 and 4.4BSD based systems at 
his dad`s office in the early 1990s. Shortly after the Y2K problem, the 
Linux User Group at Case Western Reserve University (where nobody 
actually seemed to run Linux!) first exposed him to FreeBSD. He now 
tinkers with a lot of different bits of FreeBSD, but he vacillates 
between being too lazy and too obstreperous in his insistence on C++ to 
get a commit bit. He still jests that he`s really a Computer Physicist, 
despite abandoning Physics for Computer Science in 2003. He`s always 
been easy to spot at conferences -- find the guy with the unique hat. 
(It`s different every few years.)

He worked in Erez Zadok`s FileSystem and Storage Laboratory at SUNY 
Stony Brook, mostly writing code for linux, but he did take on a Google 
Summer of Code project for FreeBSD with the Lab. Currently he works for 
FalconStor Software, Inc. writing Deduplication engines for Linux 
platforms. Somehow he always seems to wind up writing more code for 
Linux than FreeBSD systems. His specialties are Computer Science, and 
Applied Mathematics & Statistics. Some penguins may have been harmed in 
the writing of this bio.
