Adam is a nerd. That kept me humble and nearly friendless (sniff) through school, but he wears it as a badge of honor now. After buying a Commodore 64 with money from his paper route in the 4th grade, he’s never stopped learning about computers and how to make these stupid machines do cool things. Now he's a Microsoft .NET MVP and ASP Insider, and co-founder of Amegala, making a living organizing developer conferences and developing software to make that as easy as possible. In his spare time, he collects spores, molds and fungus. That last part isn't true. Are you even still reading this?
