Close Encounters of the Nurd Kind

Passed randomly today in the halls at work:

Ray Tomlinson, who among other achievements proposed using ‘@’ as the name/address separator for e-mail.

“Mudge” Zatko, one of the former members of LØpht Heavy Industries, a hacker group in Boston.

It helps that company policy requires everyone to have their ID badges displayed…

  1. But, the important part is, what are their official titles? (Bearing in mind that even got a business card that said first “Hacker” and, post-Mozilla, “Hacker Emeritus”…)

  2. I believe that they are both Principal Scientists, which is the highest you can get in the mixed management/technical track.

Nurd Up!
