Eric S. Raymond

Eric is most famous as the author of the Cathedral and the Bazaar (the complete text of which is available on his web page), the book that first described the OpenSource development model, convinced Netscape to open their source code, launched the Mozilla web browser project, and introduced Linux to Wall Street in 1998. He's also the editor of The New Hacker's Dictionary (the online version of which is known as the Jargon File), and president of the OpenSource Initiative. He's also been going to ScienceFiction conventions since the 1970's, and has more science fiction books in his basement than most big-city libraries.
