Biography

Avery wrote his first three lines of code when he was five, but they remain unreleased due to patent problems. Since then, he’s co-founded four companies, sold one to IBM, created several popular open source projects (including wvdial, bup, sshuttle, redo, git-subtree, and netselect), and enjoyed a brief foray into marketing where he advertised software using fluffy bunny imagery. He now lives in New York working on Google Fiber’s next generation of wifi devices.
