Jeff "Stoker" Robble is a low-level mobile developer, mesh network enthusiast, security researcher, and strong supporter of open source software. He's worked on projects ranging from web-based enterprise level workflow management systems, to production printing presses, to body area sensor networks, to mobile communications. His thesis was on modeling the visual system of Rhesus monkeys using non-linear AI techniques based on neuronal firing rates within the medial superior temporal region of the primate brain. Annoyed by the artificial limitations imposed on technology by hardware vendors, Jeff enjoys spending his time at the software / hardware interface level, understanding network protocols, and manipulating gadgets to his will. Jeff likes to think that he gets paid to apply modern technologies to solve the world's problems, such as the loss of network infrastructure and communications during natural (and unnatural) disasters.
