(Other stories by Jack J. Woehr)

"Theo de Raadt (pronounced "wrought") is the 32-year-old principal architect of the OpenBSD (http://www.openbsd.org) operating system project. He was born in Pretoria, S.A. When he was nine he moved to Canada and now lives in Calgary, Alberta."

"Theo seems possessed of a consuming idealism akin to that of Chuck Moore or Richard Stallman. At the same time, his aims in software engineering are reminiscent of the ideals of computer scientists such as Edsgar Dijkstra and William Kahan; that the correctness of a program should be subject to proof."

"Theo graciously took time to chat with Dr. Dobb's Journal contributing editor Jack Woehr at USENIX Security Symposium 2000."
