Dave Coombs co-founded NITI (http://open.nit.ca/) in 1997, with Avery Pennarun, in order to preclude any chance that university might not be quite stressful enough. Just kidding: it was actually because of market research. They found that a lot of things really suck, and they wanted to fix some of them.
Since then, Dave has been involved with most of NITI's open-source projects. He's the primary author of WvDial, and also wrote large parts of WvStreams, the C++ networking library that makes it all possible. These days, he manages a gang of unruly programmers at NITI's R&D centre in Montreal, but he still sometimes finds time to do real work too.
