Person Profile: Jason Lamport

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

Jason was one of the few people to insist that code wasn’t good until it was beautifully architected, cleanly laid out, well commented and documented. He was someone who constantly saw new ways to use simple combinations of existing technologies to avoid new irrelevant complexity. He was an artist, a scientist and an athlete.

The only really bad thing I can say about him, I guess, is the past tense in the above paragraph. You might find his story intriguing, or maybe just enjoy the many free and open source ideas and code he contributed on his website.
