Sam Leffler is an independent consultant doing everything from system design to expert witness work. He has been actively working with UNIX since 1975 when he first encountered it at Case Western Reserve University.

While working for the Computer Systems Research Group (CSRG) 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 networking subsystem. For the past few years he has focused on wireless networking--his work appears in open source projects and many commercial products.
