Ed Kern Always a great lover and destroyer of UNIX servers and IP networks,
Ed Kern has been building and
designing both over the last 10 years. Either as a consultant or during
his now seven year tenure at DIGEX (which was
Digital Express Group, then DIGEX, then DIGEX/Intermedia) he has designed,
built, broken, fixed, more types and
speeds of IP networks then he cares to remember.
In 1993 Ed designed and cohacked the looking glass software on his personal
machine (nitrous.digex.net) to give
DIGEX customer service the flexibility to look around the network.
A few months later the first public version was made for other providers
to see announcements from a DIGEX point of view. Since then "looking glass"
servers (either based on my code or not) are being used in over 40 countries
around the world.
Ed has given several talks at industry forums such as nanog and ripe.
Typically about his favorite lost causes like NAT,
transparent caching, and native multicast.
