Eric has always been passionate about technology, learning the BASIC computer language at the age of 10. Since then, he has learned to program in well over a dozen other languages. Eric is an advocate of open source software and has contributed his efforts to several projects. He is an incorrigible gadget-hound; he is usually the first to know and get any new device that comes on the market. Eric is an avid fan of science-fiction in all its forms: books, tv shows, movies, computer games, role-playing games or table-top games.
