Warner Losh has been interested in computers since a very early age. He got his degree from a small school in the middle of New Mexico where he used 4.2BSD on the VAX 11/750. He's done a little GUI work, and a lot of kernel work in BSD, Solaris and even Linux. He became interested in the MIPS architecture when he was given a Deskstation rPC44 in 1994 and has wanted a FreeBSD MIPS port ever since then. In the mean time, he's amused himself and his employers by writing or improving FreeBSD's PC Card, CardBus, USB, SD/MMC, PCI and device configuration subsystems. He's embedded FreeBSD into products for the past 9 years. He serves on the FreeBSD core team and has specialized in handling "problem children" in the FreeBSD project and sorting out the complexity of open source software licensing.
In the past 8 years, he's worked in the high precision time and frequency domain. He delivered systems that are used to montior the cesium clocks at NIST and USNO; used to recover UTC from GPS satellites; and used to synchronize digital video broadcasting stations. These systems were a mix of C++ user level code, kernel device drivers and specialized "timing" hardware.
