Where are they now? Interviews with some of the makers of screensavers featured in Sleepmode.
"I'm 47. I have a bachelor's degree in Information and Computer Science from the University of California at Irvine, and have been a software engineer since college."
"Born November, 1960, which makes me 55. Grew up in Huntington Beach, CA, near Los Angeles. BA Physics, University of California, San Diego, 1982. Ph.D. Physics, University of California, Berkeley, 1990."
"I was one of the founders of Netscape and Mozilla.org, and have been involved in the free software and open source community since the mid-80s. I wrote the initial Unix version of Netscape Navigator as well as Netscape Mail."
"I was born in 1958 in Madison, WI. I obtained a BS degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1979, and then a Masters and PhD in Applied Physics from Cornell University."
"I'm a 34-year-old software engineer, originally from Belfast in Northern Ireland. I earned a degree in Software Engineering at Edinburgh University, and it was during that time that I experimented with 3D graphics and created Flurry."
"As the lead designer of the most successful shareware and commercial screensavers ever made, I oversaw the evolution of the screensaver from its origin to its zenith as an art form, viable product, and part of the common consciousness."
“53 years old, Master's Degree in Computer Science from Pacific Lutheran University. I'm currently working in FUSE Labs which is part of Microsoft Research. For the past 10 years I've been working on Kodu Game Lab."
