About the Author

Brian Tiemann is a freelance technology columnist and software engineer who has operated his own business and leisure websites on servers running BSD–the technology underlying Mac OS X–since 1995. As an outspoken advocate for the Apple Macintosh platform as well as for FreeBSD, he values a synthesis between open-source and closed-source development and believes FreeBSD and Mac OS X both validate that synthesis for the benefit of all users. He resides in San Jose, is a graduate of Caltech, and is the author of Mac OS X Tiger in a Snap and FreeBSD Unleashed.
