"Various local LUGs and I had the pleasure of socializing with,
listening to, and learning from Peter Salus last week. Peter has
quite the melting pot of community achievements and technical
experiences as he's been involved in the technical community now
for, as he says, 40 plus years."
"Peter is currently the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO) of
Matrix.net (formerly MIDS). When asked one evening about his
current title, Peter chuckled. It turns out that the title came
about during a venture capitalists meeting. Someone in the venture
capitalists group stated that there weren't enough "Chiefs" in the
company. When Peter was asked what he did within the company,
someone else chimed in stating that "Peter is the one who knows
everything about everything!". Hence the title Chief Knowledge
Officer. This unique title is well earned, I can guarantee
"Several large and powerful organizations which must credit
Peter for their growth and existence are Usenix, the Free Software
Foundation, and the Tcl/Tk Consortium. Peter is a former
Executive Director of Usenix, holding office at Usenix in the
beginning years of the organization in the early 1970s. Peter was
also the Vice President of the Free Software Foundation and is
currently the Director of the Tcl/Tk Consortium."
