Author Page ( Martin A. Brown




I'm Martin, and I have been addicted to Linux since 1997. My experience lies primarily in networked systems and security. I have most recently worked for SecurePipe, Inc., a managed security services provider, which graciously continues to host this site. My other networking interests are shell (bash + ash), DocBook and XML. My avocational interests include language and grammar in English and German, fictions of death, destruction and mayhem, inline skating, and ostrich racing.

I have an M.A. in German Literature from the University of Wisconsin, Madison (USA) and a B.A. in English from Earlham College (USA).

This is a very low-tech looking page, because I'm not nearly as good a designer as my Tibetan friend Jolma. The photo above was taken in my hometown, Schenectady, NY, USA for inclusion in the Phoons website.
