I'm just a dude who knows a dude, who knows some of you dudes (I assume). I saw two former colleagues / facebook buddies get added ; read up on the idea ; loved it and asked to be included. I then spread the word to a handful like-minded other friends / colleagues to the facebook group.
My name is Keith, I'm one of the fractional percentage of people interested in this kind of stuff without post-secondary education (according the the various graphs and pie-charts anyways), and spend a good chunk of my little free time with my family or at work where I am the Director for the Call/Support Center for a local software development company.
I also have a penchant for console modding, homebrew software for said consoles, and am apparently a die-hard IRC fanatic compared to a lot of people in this group
