Rich Gibson

Rich Gibson is a Perl/Database programmer in Santa Rosa. He has worked professionally with computers since 1982 when he created Public Utility Rate Case Models in SuperCalc on an Osborne II. While the technology has changed, his fascination with using finger muscle power to control electrical impulses has not.

His current fascination is creating tools to aid in the acquistion, management, and presentation of information with a geographic component. He is currently converting an old golf cart into a mobile geo annoation platform.

He is active with the NoCat Community Network in Sebastopol, California. In his free time he dives for Abalone and Halibut and tries to keep up with his wife and three explosively active kids.
