is currently the Vice President of Engineering and Operations at
eProvenance, an early-stage startup.
eProvenance monitors fine wine and art through transport and storage to ensure environmental
factors do not adversely effect the merchandise.
Previously, I was the VP of Engineering for Oxy Systems,
a company developing social networking software for the mobile industry.
Before that I was co-founder and Vice President of Product
Development at UbqC (Pronounced as the word "Ubiquicy"). UbqC was
a storage infrastructure company. The company's intellectual property
was acquired in 2005.
Prior to UbqC, I was
the Vice-President of Engineering at
in Waltham, MA. InfoLibria is (was) a five year old startup company specializing
in Internet Content Distribution and Delivery. What that means is we
enable new services that require high-bandwidth content distribution, such
as video and audio. In short, with an InfoLibria enabled solution, think
of being able to watch TV on your computer. InfoLibria ceased operation in December 2002.
I guess there isn't much to say about them anymore.
Prior to joining InfoLibria, and for several months
after joining InfoLibria, Joe was a Management Consultant to
Orca Systems, Inc. Another interesting startup in the local area. Orca was acquired
in June of 2000 by Network Appliance,
Prior to this, he was the Director of Software Engineering
for Mercury Computer Systems, Inc.
Mercury Computer Systems sells embedded real-time distributed-memory multi-computer
systems. Their niche is in the high-end of the processing and interconnect
arena; primarily image processing systems that are used in radar and sonar
image processing, CT and MRI scanners in the medical arena, etc.
Prior to joining Merury, he was at
CLARiiON Advanced Storage Systems
(what was a Data General
Company, but aquired by EMC
in 1999), where he was the head of New Product Development.
The primary prouct he was building was
a revolutionary one for high-performance backup. The system, which reached a demonstrable
stage, was capable of linear and infinite I/O scaleability. Moving tens,
hundreds or billions of GigaBytes per hour were simply a matter adding incremental
hardware resources. Unfortunately, the company could not figure out how to
either market the product or fund its completion.
Prior to joining CLARiiON he was with
Laboratories, responsible for large-scale distributed computing systems.
From 1991 to 1995 he was with Encore Computer and was the head of the Research
Operating Systems group; this group was responsible for most of the multiprocessor
work in the Mach microkernel as well as OSF/1.
Before joining Encore Joe ran Custom Software Systems,
a systems software consulting shop and producer of retail software such as
PC/VI, and PC/TOOLs, which were implementations of UNIX programs that ran
on top of 86-DOS, er. MS-DOS.
In his deep dark past Joe worked for CompuServe where
he was a member of the three-person team that put together the original CompuServe
In a far darker past he worked for Seattle Computer
Products and was one of three authors of a tiny operating system called QDOS
for 8086 S-100 based computers. Q-DOS was later renamed to 86-DOS (mostly
when people found out that it stood for the "Quick and Dirty Operating System").
SCP sold that operating system to a little
company in Redmond
who renamed it to something else.
In addition to all that, Joe tries to do a lot for
the professional community, including having been elected First Vice-President
of the IEEE Computer Society
and serving as Vice President of the Society's Technical Activities Board
and Press Activities Board for a total of five years; was the society's Treasurer
for two years; founded and Chaired the Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating
Systems (the latest of which was
after 31 years as a Technology Director. The package was too good to pass up...
Right now she's taking the summer off and figuring out what her next steps will be.

is twenty-six years old
and is a graduate of
the University of Wisconsin at Madison
with a degree in Kineseology. He works as a track coach
at the University of Iowa, was previously a track coach
in Phoenix Arizona at
Altis. He likes training professional and
olympic class track and field athletes..
Starting the summer of 2018 he will be starting a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program
at the University of Iowa.
