Tim O'Brien



Tim O’Brien has been a Bass II in a local community chorus, an enterprise architect for a famously crazy financial news personality, a consultant to several interesting open source startups. After writing a few books for O’Reilly he decided that words should be as free as code, and now focuses much of his effort on open source, collaborative documentation efforts.

He focuses his current effort on trying to help startups communicate with open source developers, and when he’s not doing that he’s writing code or participating in an endless series of corporate meetings.
