In a former life, I worked a lot on high-availability software, specifically HACMP/6000. I was one of the co-authors of the DLM recently open-sourced by IBM. I also worked extensively on the mechanisms used for membership, node/interface monitoring, and event synchronization. More recently, as an employee of EMC, I worked on a shared-storage filesystem called HighRoad. I also worked for a while on a global-scale block-level data distribution system, based on ideas of strong hierarchical cache consistency, and in that context I met a lot of the P2P-hackers crowd. The future of that project is unclear, because, as of the time I write this, I've given notice at EMC. My last day here will be 23 August 2002, and as of 8 September I'll be working for an early-stage startup doing stuff that, unfortunately, I can't talk about. My only directly-attributable piece of open-source so far is a protocol validator, in the spirit of SPIN or Murphi. Unfortunately, since I work for the dark side, my contributions to the open-source community tend to be more in the form of my writing rather than actual code. :-( I keep an increasingly notorious weblog, and my server-design article also seems to've been well received.
