Chris Bergeron * founding member
Bio: My youth was taken up working with early C64 era computers, cars, and mudding sheetrock. That all segued rather well into working with Linux on x86 and ARM, software development, mechanics, and more gypsum board engineering. Currently I'm developing a point of sale platform professionally and trying to help build NESIT into whatever it becomes.

At NESIT my projects include such diverse subjects as Linux development, soap making (the cleaning kind), ARM processors, audio/video engineering, and beverage fermenting.
