Ian contributed to many things at Google, such as YouTube video mosaics, hosted news articles, pager duty, a mailing list about meat, and much more. He has contributed Perl modules to the CPAN, co-authored Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook, and
spoken at Perl-related conferences such as LISA, YAPC and OSCON. He received a dual degree in Computer Science and Cognitive Psychology from Northeastern University because he thought he'd be training an army of rats. Instead he has a wiener dog that uses a doorbell. Science!
