Michael Kerrisk has been using and programming computers since 1978, starting on a PDP-11 (good) that didn't have Unix (unfortunate). He only found Unix in 1987, but they've been good friends since then. In 2004, after a few years as a contributor, he became the maintainer of sections 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 of the Linux manual pages (the sections used by programmers on Linux http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/manpages/). He is currently working on a book that provides a detailed description of the Linux (and Unix) system call API. Michael lives in Munich, Germany, but he is originally from Christchurch, NZ, and says that he's an envoy from Linux City to the Mirror City.
