Kerry Brown In Kerry's own words:
"I have been involved with computers since 1970 when I went to Simon Fraser University to see what programs they offered. I remember playing Lunar Lander on a teletype input/output console. It did not impress me much. I went on to study English and Philosophy. There were not too many jobs available in those fields so I ended up in the family business running a couple of retail electronics stores. The family decided to sell computers in the stores so I bought a Timex 1000 and a TI 99. I have been hooked ever since. Many years later I am now an independent computer consultant. I specialize in designing, implementing, and administering networks for small businesses. I am very interested in Internet governance and how the Internet is changing the world. I am currently on the Board of Directors of CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority) who manage the .ca registry and DNS infrastructure. I enjoy learning and sharing computer knowledge in online forums and newsgroups. I can usually be found on the Microsoft newsgroups and UseNet posting as Kerry Brown or on many online forums as TechB. Say Hi if you see me."
