Ken Mock is an associate professor at the University of Alaska in Anchorage. He teaches Computer Science. Ken and I have known each other since Kindergarten at Castle Rock elementary school, and we both ended up teaching in Alaska. He also worked in New Mexico briefly, another strange coincidence. He worked for Intel for a few years before joining academia. Ken promised to give us some more details soon.
"I now live in Alaska, where I am slowly degenerating into a hairy, ornery, and irascible mountain man."
