Bjorn Freeman-Benson is the Director of Open Source Process for the Eclipse Foundation. Throughout his interesting career, Bjorn has always been fascinated by programming languages, development environments, and software engineering practices. He has wandered away from that "one true path" now and then, but he always returns to what he enjoys. Bjorn has worked for OTI, Amazon.com, Rational, Gemstone, and others plus he had a stint as a university professor in a previous life. With a little prompting, he is happy to expound about his experience with electric cars and his love of flying.
