Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton

  • Hardware Experience: assembly-level programming, gate-level circuit design, PCB design, reverse-engineering, embedded systems design and programming, software engineering, standards development, libre project management and more.
  • Ethical Technology Specialist. Identifies socio-economic imbalances and works out if there's an ethical way in which technology can help. If that technology doesn't exist, creates it.
  • Interests: varied and including particle physics and poetry.
  • website: http://lkcl.net
  • github: doesn't have one (because github is a proprietary non-free service), runs his own git servers, manages projects (several), entirely in a libre fashion, including managing the server(s).
