Robinson Tryon

Robinson is a Free Software evangelist and hacker currently working as a QA Engineer for The Document Foundation (TDF), the German non-profit behind LibreOffice and the Document Liberation Project, and as a volunteer coordinator of LibreOffice community outreach and education in the United States. He's shepherded improvements to TDF infrastructure including Etherpad, MediaWiki, ownCloud, and the BSA.

He's spent time working on interactive training programs for doctors and first responders at the Interactive Media Lab at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, and consulted on projects including Metadata Games, a Free/Open-Source game suite for libraries, archives, and other institutions.

When he's not speaking about LibreOffice or hacking on code, you may find him tinkering in his basement, growing beans and hops in his garden, brewing beer in his kitchen, roasting something over the fire, or floating around a lake somewhere.
