Back in '77 I worked with Steve Bourne on /bin/sh (little known fact: like awk, sh was named for its inventors, 'S' for Steve and 'H' for Humbert) and was responsible for the 'done' keyword. Following that I alternately pursued computer programming, field anthropology, and general philology; I currently work for an organization that has no name in the field of complex system obfuscation.
