Adam Lang is a UNIX Software Demolition Expert (Senior Software Engineer-in-Test, QA Engineer, Software Test Monkey, pick a title) at Cloudmark, Inc, manufacturer of fine anti-spam products for discerning customers. (Which is to say, customers who are able to discern spam from non-spam.) In his off time, he plays guitar, sings, creates silly dog blogs, writes software, and does an inordinate number of random and largely unexpected things. He can be contacted at alang at the hostname of this blog. (I.e. at dogsofsf.com).
Autumn Rhodes is a professional Irish musician, a music teacher, and a student of ethnomusicology, life, and dogs, not necessarily in that order. She plays (and teaches) the Irish wooden flute, the Anglo concertina, the Uilleann pipes (pronounced ‘illin’), a variety of tin whistles, and occasionally other things as well. She does all of this with flair and panache, and (since it’s Adam writing it I can say this) is a damned good player who has won the respect of quite a large portion of the Bay Area Irish music community… which is no easy matter. The web site for one of her bands (the Emperor Norton Ceili Band) can be found here.
