About Jeffrey Elkner

Jeffrey Elkner (or simply “jelkner” as he is often known) is a high school / community college ict / cs teacher who lives in Arlington Virginia with his wife and the eldest of his two sons.

In CS grad school way back in 1993 he discovered GCC (back when it stood for GNU C Compiler) running on the VAX system used at school. GCC led him to the GPL, which in turn led him to GNU/Linux, and his long love affair with software freedom was born.

He is currently working together with his youngest son and a group of friends to form the worker cooperative NOVA Web Development, which plans to bring software freedom to the political revolution under the slogan, “The people’s movement should use the people’s software!”
