Sam Leffler

Sam Leffler has been actively working with Unix systems since 1976 when he first encountered a PDP-11 at Case Western Reserve University, and he has been involved with what people now think of as open source long before it was even termed "open source". While working for the Computer Systems Research Group at the University of California at Berkeley he helped with the 4.1BSD release and was responsible for the release of 4.2BSD. He has contributed to almost every aspect of BSD systems, most recently working (again) on the network subsystem.

After his time at Berkeley he spent time at Lucasfilm, Pixar, Silicon Graphics, and VMware before striking out on his own as an independent consultant. His most recent work is focused on wireless networking for use in the open source community.

Ike's personal passions lie in object-relational data systems, and UNIX hacking, particularly any kinds of internet applications of these. His 'young adult' life in computing has been lived almost entirely in Open Source, as well as on the internet, and ike aspires to give back to the Open Source community that has raised him. Isaac is a proud member and on the board of advisors of NYC*BUG (the New York City *BSD Users Group) <http://www.nycbug.org/>, and a long time member of LESMUUG, (the Lower East Side Mac Unix Users Group <http://lesmuug.org/>).
