It is a real pleasure to announce that Michael McKinnon will be joining us permanently as the CDL’s principal systems architect. Michael has worked with us as a contractor since last summer, and brings 20+ years of experience from IR&C, TRW Data Services, and Hitachi, among others.  He has also served as a Unix instructor at Laney College.  Michael will take a principal role in administering our development and staging resources and working with IR&C to manage our production resources.
