"The "Ian" in Debian Linux is Ian Murdock. Murdock has also been on the research staff at the University of Arizona and coauthored the "Swarm" storage system. He's now president and CEO of Progeny Linux Systems, headquartered in Indianapolis. Progeny is commercializing Progeny Debian and the Linux NOW clustering system. Join Ian and Cameron Laird for this online interview! Runs February 6 through 8...."

"Ian's best known as the co-founder, with his wife Debra, of the Debian Project and Debian GNU/Linux. He's been employed as a programmer by the FSF, network administrator by Purdue University, and researcher by University of Arizona, among others. He's on the board of the Open Source Initiative, and was an early contributor to Linux Journal, Linux International, and the Linux Standard Base."

"Nowadays, most of Ian's attention goes to Progeny Linux Systems, the company whose president he is. Along with the Progeny Debian distribution, Progeny Debian, Progeny has product and service offerings based on NOW (network of workstations). NOW is a kind of clustering product, one which emphasizes manageability at least as much as performance, the traditional selling feature of Linux clusters."
